[RAILS] How to resolve SSL_connect error in PayPal Ruby SDK


Recently, I got an error with PayPal Ruby SDK, but the solution is that there is no Japanese information even if I search Google, and English is hardly hit, so make a note. It seems to have happened in the last few days.

SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=error: certificate verify failed (unable to get local issuer certificate)

1. Cause

The cause is on the PayPal side. PayPal Ruby SDK Gem has packaged the SSL certificate internally, and this certificate was recently removed. I don't know why PayPal made it so that the certificate goes into the Gem, but you can fix it by hacking the SDK.

2. Solution

You can fix it by adding the PEM that is still expired to the certificate inside the SDK and restarting the Rails server.

3. Solution procedure

(1) Download PEM

Download the PEM announced by PayPal in the reference article. I used the DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA, but I think any one is fine.

Where to get DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA

Download here: https://www.digicert.com/digicert-root-certificates.htm

Download the DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA PEM from here.

(2) Search for the location of paypal.crt in the SDK

For Mac and Unix, use the find command to find it. For Rails apps, look under the application's root directory. In the Production environment, if you don't know where Ruby is, you can use sudo to search all from / (find / -name paypal.crt -print).

Since my server is AWS, I searched under ~ / as follows.


[[email protected]_server ~]$ find ./ -name paypal.crt -print 2>/dev/null

(3) Add PEM to paypal.crt

Check the contents of the downloaded PEM file.

Local Mac terminal

$ cat DigiCertHighAssuranceEVRootCA.crt.pem

Omitted on the way


Edit paypal.crt found by find. The following lines 172 to 196 are the added parts. I just added it to the bottom, but note that it requires ====== and is separated by the exact name (DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA).

Run on rails server

[[email protected]_server ~]$ sudo vi paypal.crt

    196 -----END CERTIFICATE-----

(4) Restart Rails server

It depends on the environment, but in my case I can restart with systemctl on AWS, so run it.


[[email protected]_server ~]$ sudo systemctl restart rails 

Now the SSL error disappears and you can make API calls normally.
