If you are trying to run ruby rvm and rails 3.0 on Ubuntu you might run into this problem when you start up you server.

LoadError: no such file to load
-- openssl

After much googling and researching – just installing the openssl library on your system won’t fix the problem. You need to recompile and install your rvm ruby version with the openssl. I found this fixed it for me.

rvm install 1.9.2-p0 -C --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr

There is also another solution here so you don’t have to recompile every time
