Argh DNS/SSL Heroku and Gandi
We have a basic ("Hello World") website here: https://www.textsmith.org/
Setting up Heroku: easy peasy
Domain registration at Gandi: easy peasy
Getting Gandi to point to the Heroku app correctly: ARGH
It turns out that Gandi only do "A" records for naked domains (textsmith.org) and Heroku require "CNAME" records. I've tried to setup a web redirect so http://textsmith.org/ and https://textsmith.org/ always point to https://www.textsmith.org/ (which has the required "CNAME" record pointing to the Heroku app), but while https://textsmith.org/ redirects to https://www.textsmith.org/ the unencrypted http://textsmith.org/ redirects to http://www.textsmith.org/ (which isn't what I configured, it should be https since I don't want to receive unencrypted traffic). Something's gone wrong (at Gandi?). Support ticket raised and here's hoping they can shed some light on it.
It's not really THAT important for a hacked-together-game-in-a-week-for-PyWeek, but I like things to work as advertised. ;-)
