Subject Re: [users@httpd] Adding Alias with HTTPS
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2009 14:43:29 GMT

It is still just loading the HTTP page fropm the alias, not redirecting to
HTTPS. Any ideas?

Also, I would like it to be more generic as far as the redirect host is
concerned. 

Could I just do:

RewriteRule myApp/(.*) https://%{HOSTNAME}/myApp/$1   [R]

or something similar?
