Uh, just send a 302 for any requests on port 80 to the same thing on
On a shell account I have, the .htaccess file is as follows:
Redirect /~bj/ http://www.billjonas.com/
And this is with Apache 1.1.1.
I see no reason why it couldn't be https instead of http. Just use a
different DocumentRoot for secure and insecure. (You don't even need to
run two separate Apache daemons.) In your /.htaccess file for port 80,
just put something like:
Redirect http://mysite/ https://mysite/
And then in the DocumentRoot for port 443, put your actual content.
