Let's say I want to have my blog display at, but I own a SSL/TLS cert for only.

I want to have authenticated users transparently redirected from to (which uses TLS) so that their connections can be encrypted. The latter URL should be the admin interface for the blog.

I'm using Apache2 on RHEL 5.4.
