Subject [users@httpd] specifying https-specific directives
Date Mon, 03 Jul 2006 22:20:06 GMT


I have a Apache/2.0.55 running on a BSD machine.

I'm wondering how I could specify a different set of directives for a 
given directory based on whether it's accesed through plain HTTP or 
HTTPS - but without having to put the HTTPS-specific directives into the 
according VirtualHost section.

Like accessing an environment variable indicating the transport used or 
something like that - based on which I could differentiate the directives.

Specifically, I want to allow access only for my local subnet through 
plain HTTP, but allow access from anywere through HTTPS.

The reason why I don't want to put the HTTPS-specific directives into 
the VirtualHost section is that I want all settings applying to a given 
directory to be in one place - and my VirtualHost section is included 
from a separate ssl.conf, so using that would mean separating the 
HTTPS-specific directives for the directory from the global directives.

Could anyone point me to the right direction? I couldn't find any 
discussion of this matter on the net.
