HTTPS to HTTPS Redirection



11:38 am on May 5, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi All,

We have a client server hosting our web application using Apache 2.2 & Tomcat 6 in RHEL. I have setup apache re-write rule for http to https redirection and it works fine. We have two DNS names that are used to access the same application. Test1.com [Old Domain] and Test2.com[New Domain]. I want all the users trying to access [test1.com...] or [test1.com...] to [test2.com....] As mentioned, [test1.com...] to [test2.com...] redirection is working fine. I am not able to implement [test1.com...] to [test2.com....]

We have a valid certificate for 2nd domain, but not the 1st domain. So when a user try to access using 1st domain, a security warning is displayed. I want the user to be redirected to 2nd domain before the security warning is encountered. If that's not possible, I would want to redirect the user to 2nd domain after the user clicks on "Proceed anyways".

I have tried Virtual Hosts, ServerAlias, NameVirtualHost, but nothing works. Any suggestions if we can handles this via re-write would help. Any other pointers that might lead to the resolution of this issue will be appreciated.

Maybe you could rewrite the request from https to http and first redirect the user to some temporary http domain which would then redirect to new https.

Thanks for the reply. So you mean to say, the scenario could be as follow:

1. User tries to access [test1.com...]
2. User is redirected to [test1.com...]
3. User is redirected to [test2.com...]

If possible, can you please provide me with the rewrite condition and rules for this scenarion. I am really new to this stuff and would really appreciate the help!
