Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTTPS configuration problem.
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2014 19:59:57 GMT
Do the users actually connect to "" ?  Or do they go just to
"" in their browser and then a load-balancer/SSL-accellerator
somewhere along the way bumps them to https?

If something was bumping them to https then it would be easiest to just
change that 'bumping' to go from "" to "",
which ofcourse any webserver could do (with a default document with a
meta-refresh), but most content-source-switches or
local-traffic-managers/loadbalancers could do right in the config (i.e.
they respond to the GET / with a HTTP 302 go-over-here, etc), i.e. actually
function as a limited in-line web-server.

Good luck...
