    Can you view the redirects using the network debug tab in chrome, etc, and see what the redirects are looping through? – Jason Floyd Jul 12 '18 at 16:08
  • Also, given that I answered your other question about the reverse proxy for port 2000 /api/v1 reuqests, you probably want that in your SSL vhost block, not your port 80 vhost. your port 80 vhost should just redirect everything to https:// and then your https:// vhost does the reverse proxy to your node app. – Jason Floyd Jul 12 '18 at 16:09
  • cool. i used .htaccess to redirect http to https then it got sorted. il move api block to ssl and check. – Frodo Jul 13 '18 at 6:30

You could just use a redirect instead of rewrite rules:

<VirtualHost *:80> 
ServerAdmin admin@example.com    
ServerName example.com 

ServerAlias www.example.com 

Redirect permanent / https://www.example.com

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined 


</VirtualHost>
