Subject RE: [users@httpd] Redirecting request from HTTP to HTTPS
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2009 11:50:53 GMT
Hi Krist

Thanks Krist, I got your point.
Now, If I remove the proxy and go for redirect. In that case, how could
I redirect the http request to https://localhost:4430/hsbc which should
redirect it to https://localhost:443/hsbc. I cannot directly redirect
the SSL requests to Apache 1.3 because we have to use the upgraded
modules present at apache 2.2 and not 1.3.

Regards
Tarun

First you need to make clear to us if you want to "redirect" requests,
or if you want to "proxy" them. These two things are fundamentally
different. You use the term "redirect" in your explanation, but in
your examples you are proxying.

Proxying http -> https is something apache doesn't do out of the box.
It is alos something you might not need. It's pretty pointless to
secure the internal part of a communication when you're not securing
the external part.
