I had a similar problem. My solution was to allow the existence of the
alias on the http host, but redirect it to the https host. Like this:

Alias /myApp/ /opt/installdir/myApp

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule myApp/(.*)$1   [R]

What you could also do is have the Rewrite return a Forbidden:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule myApp/(.*) - [F]
