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

how can I configure apache httpd 2.x to force ssl when a certain URL is called ? For instance, let http://www.mycompany.com be plain-text by default, except when a user opens http://www.mycompany.com/secure (and anything below) it forces https://www.mycompany.com/secure.

Thanks

You can use mod_rewrite to do this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/secure(.*) https://www.mycompany.com/secure$1 [R,L]

You should enable mod_rewrite and add the following to your Apache config:

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} secure 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.mycompany.com/secure/$1 [R,L]
