redirect https request to http after user authentication


Hello,



I need help in redirecting an https://webpage to http://webpage after user authentication



E.g. https://subversion.org to http://subversion.org after user authentication



I have enabled mod_rewrite.c and made Rewrite Engine on

But still it does’t work



Could anyone suggest me on this issue?





Regards,

R.R.Vishwanath

[EDIT] woops didn't read your post right.

Once you've authenticated the user, and are about to display the "youre in!" page:

Add a mod rewrite rule naming that page, but forward it to https://... If you're having trouble with this step, post your .htaccess.

Why do you need to do this, though? Are you worried about overhead? If you bothered authenticating the person, why not just maintain a secure connection? I don't get it.
