Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: trying to mod_rewrite for specific files

    trying to mod_rewrite for specific files

    Hello all,

    Using a .htaccess file, I am trying to get a few specific files on my server to rewrite their URLs to contain "https://" at the beginning, for a secure connection.

    I am using this code elsewhere

    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} admin
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.<Site URL goes here>/admin/$1 [R,L]

    To add the https for any file in that directory.

    However, I have no idea how to apply this kind of action for specific files in a directory. And regular expressions have me very confused.

    Any help is appreciated,

    Bit old this thread now, Not sure if it will help, but the code below helps rewrite get requests and looks for a index.html or index.php, might put you on the right track

    # Redirect URLs ending in /index.php or /index.html to /   
    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET\ .*/index\.(php|html?)\ HTTP   
    RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.(php|html?)$ $1 [R=301,L]
    while ( ! ( succeed = try() ) );
