After an upgrade from 10.10 to 10.11, my rails environment was broken.

I've removed the broken open-source projects/files and now I'm trying to install HomeBrew.

But I receive this message:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
curl: (77) SSL: can't load CA certificate file /System/Library/OpenSSL/certs/cert.pem

But to install OpenSSL, I need homebrew. So, I'm stuck.

How can I get around this issue?

You can curl without SSL by removing the ‘s’ from ‘https’:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL http://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Additionally, you could just point a web browser to the page, http://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install and save the code to /tmp/brew.rb as a text file and then run it

ruby -e /tmp/brew.rb
