I have browsed through various forums in search of an answer to this:

I need https://www.domain.com to redirect to https://domain.com. Reason being, the cert is only valid for https://domain.com and not https://www.domain.com

This rewrite rule works fine to redirect:

==
rewriteEngine on
rewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain\.com
rewriterule (.*) https://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
==

Only one problem. I still get prompted that the SSL cert is invalid for https://www.domain.com, and only after I accept the certificate in it's invalid state do I get redirected to https://domain.com. I have tried using this rewrite rule in .htaccess and the virtual host directive for 443 within httpd.conf. No luck.

My goal is to have https://www.domain.com redirected to https://domain.com before the cert prompt.

Note: The SSL-domain logs no longer show https://www.domain.com being accessed, but rather https://domain.com after the rewrite. Yet, still no success with redirecting before the cert check takes place.

Any suggestions?

I know this is silly...but I did it previously.

After making all of those changes to your apache configuration...did you restart apache? Last time I altered my .htaccess file I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting prompted for a password (I added pword prot to a directory). Then I restarted apache and slapped my forehead EXTREMELY hard.

You generally don't need to restart apache for the .htaccess files to take affect.

Thats odd.


Is there anyway you can send your visitors to http://domain.com before they access the ssl page??
