web protocol redirection

Postby slamp » Sun Jul 31, 2005 3:07 pm

hi guys,

I know this is not the place to ask this question but who else knows about this better than people that actually runs their own server.

is there a way to redirect http://www.sitename.com to
https://www.sitename.com even before hitting the actual web server?

i know this can be done using:

mod_rewrite

or

<?php header("Location:https://www.sitename.com"); ?>

or

a metarefresh equivalent for html.

problem is optimum online blocks port 80 so the above will not work. i
dont know if there is any other way to do this maybe in DNS?

thanks for any input.

Topic moved to Free time.

Yes, you can make it using Apache and mod_rewrite:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase   /usr/local/website
RewriteCond   %{SERVER_PORT}  !^443$
RewriteRule   ^(.*)?$   https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [L,R]
With this code any http (80) request to the server will be forwarded to https (443).

Another alternative for the 3rd line could be:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !^on$
Just a better proof for the https.

The Web Protocol allows to use a Cisco Cache Engine to handle web traffic, thus reducing transmission costs and downloading time. This traffic includes user requests to view pages and graphics on World Wide Web servers, whether internal or external to your network, and the replies to those requests.
