Apache: Redirect http to https Apache secure connection – force HTTPS Connections

by on November 26, 2006 · 80 comments· LAST UPDATED May 18, 2007

in , ,

Let us say you have webmail sub-domain called http://mail.nixcraft.com and you would like to redirect it to https secure connection i.e. https://mail.nixcraft.com.

This will help you protect user privacy and sensitive information such as username and password remotely.

So how do you configure your Apache web server so that you prevent your web sites from being accessed without encryption?

Redirect http to https Apache Configuration

First make sure Apache is configured for HTTPS connection and necessary SSL certificates are installed.

No non-ssl access i.e. only accept https connections

Now open httpd.conf or .htaccess file (mod_rewrite not required):
# vi httpd.conf
Append following line :
Redirect permanent / https://mail.nixcraft.com/
Any request made to http://mail.nixcraft.com will goto https://mail.nixcraft.com/

Save and close the file. Restart the Apache:
# /etc/init.d/httpd restart

This is easiest way to ensure that your normal user never use plain text HTTP protocol to send data. Now this makes it much harder to sniff sensitive data.

Force webmail login over SSL https session

So if you want force users to access their webmail through https, add following configuration to .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

Make sure you have something as follows in httpd.conf (mod_rewrite support):
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

does this work when i am using reverse proxy in apache 2? All I need to do is add in the virtual directory redirect permanent / https://1.1.1.1

Not working for me. In Firefox I get:

“Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

I can see the location in the browser change to “https://…” but it just throws me that error.

If i write the location directly it works fine.

Thanks for any advice.

You can’t do this in a virtual server that listens on both 80 and 443. It’ll redirect 80 (http) to the 443 (https) url, but then the https site will redirect back to itself if they’re both handled in the same virtual server block.

Yes you by using RewriteCond you can use them.

I had the same experience as Luis on 5/3/2007, running on a LAN. Interestingly, when I then remove / disable the line with an `#’ like in:

# Redirect permanent / https://ws530/

redirection takes place as originally desired (in this case w/o any site certifications). In fact, I do not know how to revert back to communicate via http:// …

What happened?

You used a “permanent” redirect. Your web browser remembers the redirect forever, and will perform the redirect without interacting with the server.

hi,
i got s SSL for “secure.myurl.ext” and want the anybody accessing secure.myurl.ext sees the content from “myurl.ext” which is my main site, but i don’t want to do a redirect and URL above should remain as “secure.myurl.ext”
so do i need to re-upload everything to my secure folder, or i need to do a mod_rerite trick.

thanks,

Hi there…

I just tried adding # to disable the line and redirection takes place pretty straight-forward

Strange… or this is a bug ?

Reply

15 Gitsnik September 10, 2007 at 12:12 am

sandi… did you restart apache when you disabled the line?

In my case, running the HTTPS on the same server as the HTTP, the mod_rewrite rules:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

In my webroot/.htaccess file are enough to redirect all http traffic to https.

capcha: iptable — could also use these to do the https redirection ;)

This way will never work. Instead go to the sites root directory. Open up .htaccess and add line

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R,L]

This should work

if you want to remove redirect permanent, then hash the line where you have given redirect option.
then restart the server, restarting the httpd sometimes doesn’t work.

Thanks. Your second piece of advice (using RewriteEngine) was exactly what I was looking for. We just put https on a site following concerns over passwords being transmitted in the clear and this solves that issue in one fell swoop.

I tried using this method for a server host site and everything works as it should except that the server statistics like load and uptime show as “Not Available”. These are the only two items that won’t show. Without the .htaccess file there, the server stats work fine from both http and https. I’m stumped.

Change your Virtual host to list on port 443 instead of port 80 and should redirect yopur site.

I cannot use .htaccess files cause both subdomains have their own directory (it’s a plesk installation). Can I configure it with a global/ permanent redirect?

Hello guys, recently i purchased rapidssl from sslgenie. I used to redirect all my requests of http://nodewire.net/any url to https://nodewire.net/any url just by modifying .htaccess. this seemed to work well with SSLGENIE cert. However, when i switched over to Rapidssl cert, this edit in .htaccess seemed to be a problem. So i had to remove the code in htaccess, now my site has https only when a user manually types it. Please tell me how to redirect all http requests to https by editing httpd.conf or .htaccess.

PS: Rapidssl has a server root certificate while sslgenie doesnt! though this might help a bit?? (dunno)

34 mewbie June 4, 2009 at 4:40 am

using: apache2-mpm-prefork 2.2.9-10+lenny2 on Linux Debian

1.) I have been trying for days to get redirect/force to only https without success.
I too get loop error if I add the line to apache2.conf:
Redirect permanent / https://my.domain.com/
============
2.) I’ve also tried both .htaccess codes posted above creating a .htaccess and put it in webroot /var/www/.htaccess (I presently don’t use any .htaccess files)
“Internal Server Error <The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request…..”

pico /var/www/.htaccess
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

chmod 644 /etc/apache2/.htaccess
/etc/init.d/apache2 reload

============also tried:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://myurl.com/$1 [R,L]

same error
============
3.) Another place I read to add this line to apache2.conf:
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

Cannot load /etc/apache2/modules/mod_rewrite.so into server: /etc/apache2/modules/mod_rewrite.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
failed!

This prevented my apache from restarting as suspected as I can’t find in ‘any’ of the files the “LoadModule” line, period.

The only thing I could find that sounds related was this here:
/etc/apache2/mods-available/rewrite.load
so seems this module isn’t even loaded as it’s not in the /mods-enabled/ directory.

Please if anyone could help solve this that would be great!
Thank you for your time :D

I was able to get a HTTP to HTTPS redirect working.

I put the redirect permanent in httpd.conf, in the section for a specific NameVirtualHost listener:

<NameVirtualHost 122.123.124.1:80>
    ServerName mywebsite.com:80
    ServerAlias www.mywebsite.com:80
    ServerAlias 122.123.124.1:80
    Redirect permanent / https://www.mywebsite.com/

I am a squat on advanced Apache work. I would get a basic SSL functionality to work.
So https://foobar.com works fine and gets me all the login windows I designed. however currently all the images and other extensions like .pdf are also using the https routing.
some image referred on that https link
e.g. https://foobar.com/loginhere.jpeg c
can be displayed using https but not http
I would like to JUST limit https usage to the login window html and ALL other images pdf’s and unsecured html ( ones that do not need password ) should use HTTP NOT HTTPS
any idea how that is done ?
any idea how I can find out which particular filetypes are being redirected via https
Thanks for your help

Hey guys,

those having problems in form of a redirect did not take place,
did you do a
/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload
?
Actually that should only be necessary if you write it into the httpd.conf or a virtual-host-description file. when using .htaccess it should work right away…

worked fine for me

54 Joe August 2, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Well have you tried using an http meta-redirect, or using .htaccess in the subdirectories, so that app1 is always https while app2 is always https, they have tutorials out there, try using meta-redirect in an index.html page, that way if you screw up you can always make a new index.html page, and not fuss around with .htaccess, its easy writing html code but not .htaccess…

55 rigidkitchen September 20, 2010 at 4:35 pm

The answer is surprisingly in another tutorial on the site.

In the directory you want to redirect to ssl:

SSLRequire %{HTTP_HOST} eq “www.nixcraft.com”

I have this under my document root in httpd.conf and it works great. I have the virtual host in ssl.conf set up to use the same directory. works great

Dows anyone have any idea please on what lines of code that I’m going to add into the htaccess file? Basically, I just need my login page, registration page to be in SSL. The rest of the pages will be in http like the index.php. I have the SSL installed already in my server. I have the htaccess code to redirect all pages into https but I don’t need the whole site to be in https. I have this few lines of code and this make the whole site in https:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule ^index.php$ https://www.mysite.com/

I need only these pages to be https and the rest of the site to load in http

http://www.mysite.com/?do=login
http://www.mysite.com/?do=reg
http://www.mysite.com/?do=login&url=sell
http://www.mysite.com/?do=login&url=myaccmain
http://www.mysite.com/?do=login&url=sindex

Any idea please on how to make it that only login, registration to be in https? Then if user open it in http it will automatically be redirect into https. If user open index page in https it will automatically be change into http. Please help.

Hello,

there are a lot of domains hosted in my dedicated server.
There is an alias /webmail pointing to the installed webmail-interface which could be used from all domains on my server

e.g. there are the domains foobar1.de, foobar2.net, foobar3.com, foobar4.de, foofoobarbar.info, …
and the webmail client is reachable: e.g. foobar1.de/webmail , … , foofoobarbar.info/webmail

That’s fact and running.

Now i want to force all “/webmail”-calls to “https://”, so that the call “foobarxy.org/webmail” automatically chanches to “https://foobarxy.org/webmail” without regarding other calls like foobar.org (homepage) oder foobar3.com/directoryxy or others.

The aim is to force only the “/webmail” calls to htts not the others.

Is there a simple way?

Add the following to /etc/apache2/sites-available/default under

RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

What i want to achieve is configure outbound proxy for specific HTTPS urls. Its a white list validation. e.g. If i (my application) hits a specific HTTPS URL , then only redirect should happen .. something like this –

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET\ (http://www.google.com/.*)\ HTTP [OR] RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET\ (http://www.oracle.com/.*)\ HTTP RewriteRule . proxy:%1 [L]

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^CONNECT\ (www.abc.com):443/?.*)\ HTTP RewriteRule . proxy:https://%1 [L]

The first part for HTTP works fine. So outbound URLs which start with HTTP gets redirected according to rule but if i hit HTTPS , it doesnt work .. it gives forbidden error or cookie error..

Can any body please help.

Hi Sudeep just paste this code:

RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

in .htaccess under the

# To redirect all users to access the site WITHOUT the ‘www.’ prefix,
# (http://www.example.com/… will be redirected to http://example.com/…)
# uncomment the following:
# RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.+)$ [NC]
# RewriteRule ^ http://%1%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

If you want to have a redirect from HTTP->HTTPS but not for a specifice subfolder (eg for images) then you could use the following rewrite rules:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*/img/.*
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
in this example it will redirect every request to HTTPS if it is not HTTP and has not /img/ in the URL.

Hi,
I want to do some redirections like this:
base-url.com -> base-url2.com (but only if no subdir is given)
and
base-url.com/any_subdir -> https://base-url.com/any_subdir
and, if possible, this rulsets only within the site-config not within .htaccess, cause there are developers cleaning folders… this is driving me nuts…
I can’t get it. Can anyone give me a hint, please?

Reply

73 it's_me April 24, 2013 at 7:40 am

Sorry, my initial description was to short.

What I need to do is, to do two redirects on one base-url with two different conditions. First is to redirect a request with just the base-url (like _http://some_url.org) to _http://some_other_url.org .

_http://some_url.org -> _http://some_other_url.org

The second one is, if _http://some_url.org/some_subdir is requested it shoud be redirected to SSL of the same host _https://some_url.org/some_subdir .
So in case 2 it should not be redirected to some_other_url.org .

_http://some_url.org/some_subdir -> https_://some_url.org/some_subdir

Both rewrites are not verry complex for its own, but I can’t get them working together.
So my problem is, how do I have to set the RewriteCond (to be exact the regexp) to do the matching. The http->https overrules always.

I did several experiments with RewriteCond, RewriteRule, RedirectMatch but I didn’t get it. Does anybody have an idea?

Oh, btw this should be done by the vhost-config, not with .htaccess-files in document-folders. It’s a restriction I’m not responsible for :-( cause developers sometimes empty the doc-folders.

Sorry, I had to do this _http because of this editor to not recognize this “URLs”.
thanks a lot

Reply

76 Amit Desai January 31, 2014 at 6:34 am

I have enabled https and also able to navigate application using http and https without rewrite. Apache 2.2.24. but see a strange behavior.

Receiving 400 bad request if passing http://hostname.com/webapp-name but works fine with http://hostname.com/webapp-name/ don’t know how / can help to redirect to https.

Also, enabled the rewrite with following in httpd.conf but don’t see a difference.
Also, http redirection is going improper. Please help me as today is my submission

# Rewrite Engine
RewriteEngine On
# now the rewriting rules
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule .* https:///webapp-name [R,L]

Based on user clicks on language browser redirects to specific language….i18N support

ServerName 10.95.55.11:80

RewriteEngine on
## Rewriting url for ARabic support browser
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Language} ^ar [NC]
RewriteRule ^/ProjectName/$ http://10.95.55.11/ProjectName/employeeLogin.html?lang=ar [L,R=301]

I have read all the way to the bottom. If the redirect permanent / https://whatev.hher.com does not work. Either delete or comment it out, in the same area add the

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R,L]

I searched and tested for two days anthis worked.
