Redirect HTTP to HTTPS:


Hi. I am not new to Linux but new to apache. Here is my issue. We have a server running Cygwin on a windows server which is running a website. Hope I explained that correctly. I want to redirect the http requests to https. You can access the website through both at this moment, but we want to have all http requests redrect to https. How do I do this? I have looked online but not sure if I understand. Can someone explain to me how to do this? Thanks for all help

Use a RewriteRule. There are 28410478120 tutorials on the Web about this. Plus, I answered this same question yesterday: you could even do a LQ search to get your answer.

I wrote I searched the internet. If the answer was as plain as day I would not have posted the thread. While I have seen a gazillion posts on rewrite rules, I don't see where or how I enter them. What config file do I edit or do I edit from the shell, those are the questions I am asking. Never had to edit a server running apache or linux for that matter.

httpd.conf, usually. Which is usually in /etc/httpd/conf, but I couldn't tell you where it would be on Cygwin.

I found it. It was in the program folder of the program Cygwin installed, I guess thats how it worked. I made the rewrite changes and restarted the service and it worked without a hitch. Thanks. Man linux is so cool, but takes time to get use to. Leave to us Windows children to be all confused, lol. Thanks dude.
