Redirect HTTP to HTTPS

It’s pretty simple after adding a HTTPS site in apache, to forward your existing HTTP website traffic to HTTPS. There might be reasons why you don’t forward everything, but in this case today I was asked to forward everything. Here is how I achieved it:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L] 

It could be configured for a specific directory tho

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?somedir/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/secure/$1 [R,L] 

Pretty simple stuff.
