I'm building a personal website using Nginx and I'd like to have the option of serving the same content over both HTTP and HTTPS. However, the content management system I'm using stores a lot of the URIs as HTTP. This results in a lot of mixed content when using HTTPS, and eventually results in entire pages being served over HTTP.
I'm considering using persistent Perl script to act as a proxy and rewrite HTML as it is served. The alternative seems to be finding or writing plugins for each Web software package I install.
Is there a better way to go about this?
