IBM HTTP Server - Rewriting HTTP (port 80) requests to HTTPS (port 443)

Rewriting HTTP (port 80) requests to HTTPS (port 443)

The rewrite module (mod_rewrite.c) provided with the IBM® HTTP Server can be used as an effective way to automatically rewrite all HTTP requests to HTTPS.

The rewrite module (mod_rewrite.c) can be used to automatically rewrite all HTTP (port 80) requests to HTTPS (port 443). This provides an effective way to ensure that all traffic to and from the IBM HTTP Server is encrypted over the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) without having to use individual redirects or hard-coded HTTPS links.
