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

This question already has an answer here:

I have several domains under the same server, but my https certificated only works for one of them.

  1. I need to force https for: mydomain1.com
  2. All other domains (mydomain2.com, mydomain3.com ...) must use http.

I know it must be a simple rule, but I wasn't able to figure it out.

Just use virtual hosts : http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/vhosts/name-based.html

But they require to be specified inside the server configuration (can't do it inside .htaccess)

<VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerName mydomain1.com
    DocumentRoot /www/mydomain1
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt 
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.key/server.key

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName mydomain2.com
    DocumentRoot /www/mydomain2

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName mydomain3.com
    DocumentRoot /www/mydomain3

I don't have access to it. I was trying to find a workaround using htaccess, but it seems that I will have to request this to the server admin. –  Acacio Feb 5 '13 at 15:03
All theses options are security sensitive and so are limited to server config : httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslengine Context: server config, virtual host –  Cerber Feb 5 '13 at 15:09
