So, there's two things:

First: On webfaction, I can't update Ruby to get the latest language patches, so when I'm using something that has a nil socket, it can't find the closed? method, and it fails utterly. I fixed this on my local machine by updating to the latest version of ruby 1.8.7 (patchlevel 334).

Once I did that, I got the following error:

SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed

...which I still can't figure out.

In any case, I'd like to figure this out! My app uses the paypal_adaptive gem, which looks for a cert... though I didn't have this problem with the (insecure) Rails 3.0.1.

Ack! Any help would be great.

The person who developed this has the same question posted in their blog,

http://tommy.chheng.com/2009/12/29/paypal-adaptive-ruby-gem-released/

If you search the post for Open SSL there are comments that explains some options near the bottom. Since this appears to be an error generated by the gem itself the best people to ask would be the gem's developer community.

As for updating Ruby, you may build your own version within your home directory. Since we do not change the system provided version to maintain stability for other users. There is a post on our old forum with instructions on how to do this,

The versions and code provided there will need updating for the version you want.
