Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i need to create a rewrite rule to redirect my page from http://example.com to https://example.com.

But in the case that the client opened the page with any GET parameter, it should remain the same without any redirecting. For example:

  • http://example.com/index.php should redirect to https://example.com/index.php
  • http://example.com/index.php?param1=val1 should not redirect.
