Allow only ssl, https:// not http:// on apache2 webserver, Linux

I'm new to posting, will try to be brief. Apache has been configured on Linux, certs are working, relatively simple implementation for 1 website. System uses httpd.conf file for port 80 reference, httpd-ssl.conf file for ssl, namely port 443. Have been surfing, have found many references to include "RedirectPermanent /" within the httpd.conf file, but this doesn't work (still can access the site with both http:// and https://). Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

May be you should try this :

Link :
.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/
