Apache 2 / SSL and virtual host under GNU/Linux Debian Etch - http and https
 
Hello,

I have a web server under Debian Etch.

I can access web page using
http://myvhost.mydomain.com

I'd like to provide users a more secure way to access this page
using SSL
I successfuly used this tutorial http://www.debianadmin.com/install-a...bian-etch.html

and I can access to the web page using
https://myvhost.mydomain.com:443

but I have a problem
I would like to be able to provide both a
http access and a https access
without providing port in the url
so http://myvhost.mydomain.com
and https://myvhost.mydomain.com
(on the same server, same ip)

Is it possible ?

If not I can put
NameVirtualHost *:80
NameVirtualHost *:443
in my /etc/apache2/sites-available/default conf file

but should I put exactly the same parameters for both virtualhost (<VirtualHost *:80> and <VirtualHost *:443>) or is there a way to say something like <VirtualHost *:443> is same as 80 except you should add
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/apache.pem

(because I have some directories protected using AuthType Basic
and I don't consider that copy/paste it is a good idea)

Kind regards
