Subject Re: [users@httpd] Redirecting http traffic to an https virtual host
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2006 16:44:20 GMT

Peter,

Here is what I have in production today on a Apache 2.0.X server.  This 
is within a VirtualHost.   Suggest defining a rewrite log and setting 
logging level high to see what's going on behind the scene if this 
doesn't work for you.

John

<Location "/xyz">
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !=443
    RewriteRule ^.*/xyz(.*)$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}/xyz$1 [R]
</Location>
