    I'm using litespeed-2.1.16 to proxy requests to backend web server (Ruby on Rails with Mongrel). When using HTTPS I need to add a special header to the request, so the backend server will understand that the initial request is over HTTPS. For example with pound reverse proxy (see ):
    AddHeader "X-Forwarded-Proto: https"
    For Apache:
    RequestHeader set X_FORWARDED_PROTO 'https'
    How to add such a header with LiteSpeed?

    That header will be added automatically by LSWS 2.1.17. The new release will be announced soon. Actaully, you can downalod it now.

    Thank you very much. You made my day :) Just for the record (maybe can help somebody) - what I'm doing in the moment:
    # app/controller/application.rb
    def require_ssl
      env['HTTPS'] = 'on' unless (@request.ssl? or local_request?)
    # app/controller/othercontroller.rb
    before_filter :require_ssl
    # or: before_filter :require_ssl, :only => [:some_action]
    # or: before_filter :require_ssl, :except => [:some_action]
