Tried to install LuaSec on a new machine recently and got the following error:
luarocks install luasec
Warning: Failed searching manifest: Failed loading manifest: Failed fetching manifest for http://luarocks.org/repositories/rocks – Error fetching file: Failed downloading http://luarocks.org/repositories/rocks/manifest – URL redirected to unsupported protocol – install luasec to get HTTPS support.
So all I need to do to install LuaSec is install LuaSec first, brilliant!
One solution is buried here https://github.com/luarocks/luarocks-site/issues/6
and is to specify the server directly:
luarocks install –only-server=http://rocks.moonscript.org luasec
