Redirect HTTP to HTTPS on Apache Virtual Host Additionally, to force all web traffic to use HTTPS, you can also configure your virtual host file. Normally, there are two important sections of a virtual host configurations if an SSL certificate is enabled; the first contains configurations for the non-secure port 80.


Step 1: Install / Configure Apache2 HTTPS

Apache is installed, but when I try to go to my website, it loads the index / page instead of my index.html or index.php pages. And on the index / page, it only reads a directory called config and a file called config.php inside that directory, when there are at least 10 other files and directories in. On Crunchify we have already published almost 40 articles on Apache Tomcat. In most of the tutorial I’ve run server on port 8080 which is default port configured in server.xml file. In this tutorial we will go over all steps in details on how to enable HTTPS/SSL on Apache Tomcat Server. Let’s get started: Step-1. Create Keystore.


To configure Apache2 to redirect all traffic to HTTPS, you must configure and enable its SSL modules.. The post below shows you how to install and configure Apache2 to communicate over HTTPS… however, both HTTP and HTTPS are enabled… the method below will show you how to redirect all traffic to the server to use HTTPS only..

Step 2: Redirect Apache2 HTTP to HTTPS

Our post above set up Apache2 to communicate over both HTTP and HTTPS… however, in today’s environment, it’s recommended to choose one type of protocol and redirect the other to it..

For example, you should redirect all HTTP (80) to HTTPS (443). To do that, add the highlighted portion of the code to your Apache2 site configuration file…

Run the commands below to open Apache2 default site configuration file..

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Then add the highlighted portion to the bottom of the file.

Redirect to same domain on HTTPS only

The configuration above redirect all requests to use HTTPS only to communicate with the server with domain name example.com. So, http://example.com and http://www.example.com will be redirect to https://example.com

Step 3: Redirect Old Domain to New

If you want to redirect from an old domain to a new one, the setting below should help you do that… For this setup, HTTPS isn’t required… Run the commands below to open Apache2 default site configuration file.

Apache http to https redirect not working

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Then add the highlighted portion to the bottom of the file.

Redirect old domain to new domain

The above code added to your Apache2 site configuration file will redirect an old domain to a new one without HTTPS…. the highlighted code above redirects http://example.net and http://www.example.net to http://example.com

After making the changes above, run the commands below to test your settings and enable Apache2 rewrite and SSL modules.

If you don’t see any error messages then you’re good. Restart Apache2 web server by running the commands below.

sudo systemctl restart apache2.service
