I have a virtual host setup in apache, that works for SSL only. It is setup as so:
<VirtualHost 22.214.171.124:443> <IfModule mod_ssl.c> SSLCertificateFile /home/me/server.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/me/server.pem SSLEngine on ServerName example.com SSLOptions StrictRequire SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 </IfModule> DocumentRoot /me ServerName example.com <Location /> AllowOverride none </Location> RemoveHandler .cgi .pl .py .php4 .pcgi4 .php3 .phtml .pcgi .php5 .pcgi5 RemoveType .cgi .pl .py .php4 .pcgi4 .php3 .phtml .pcgi .php5 .pcgi5 </VirtualHost>
What I want to do, is have it so when someone goes to my site, they are automatically redirected to the https version.
Outside of the VirtualHost, I tried listening on port 80, and redirecting to the secure version, like so
Listen 126.96.36.199:80 NameVirtualHost 188.8.131.52:443
Redirect permanent / https://example.com/
However, this apparantly caused an infinite loop.
What is the correct way to redirect to a https version of a site when the https site is a VirtualHost?
