Subject [users@httpd] https RewriteRule before authentication
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2005 00:08:20 GMT
I am running Apache 2.0.53 on Sun Solaris 9.

I am trying to force the use of https for a particular web site.  
I've done:

		<VirtualHost *:80>
		ServerName www.somewhere.com
		RewriteEngine On
		RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /somestring/
		RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.somewhere.com/$1
		</VirtualHost>

		The problem is that the user must first be authenticated
against an ldap
		and that password authentication happens before the
redirect;
		defeats the whole purpose. The purpose is to encrypt the
login to the ldap.

		Any suggestions?
