Subject RE: [users@httpd] Automatically Having An SSL Connection To A Web Site
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2004 17:04:49 GMT
Andrew,

If you use http:// and port 80, you don't need a port number in the url.
Also, if you use https:// and port 443, you don't need a port number in the
url.  These are two standard ports for http. and https.

If you wish to redirect users from 80 to 443, you can do it in your virtual
host setup like this:

<VirtualHost 555.555.555.55:80>
	ServerName foo.com
	ServerAdmin webmaster@foo.com
	DocumentRoot /path/to/root/
	Redirect / https://foo.com/


Then just set up another vhost for the ssl site, like this:

<VirtualHost 555.555.555.55:443>
	ServerName foo.com
	ServerAdmin webmaster@foo.com
	DocumentRoot /path/to/root/

	SSLEngine on
	SSLCertificateFile /path
	SSLCertificateKeyFile /path
	SSLCertificateChainFile /path
	SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown

You could also configure your network to push port 80 requests to 443.  I
prefer the vhost method, as it is more flexible.
