Redirects and Proxy Force SSL

  • Hello,

    i use very often the Proxy function for a Domain, which is very easy and perfect. I might be a little bit better, if there can be an option to force proxy over https.

    <> connected to IMSCP and set as Proxy to <> (where the content is located such as Wordpress)

    I can use and, both worked perfect. It will be a dream if there where an option to redirect http to https

    On the <> i have no chance to force to https, because always http.

    Thanks a lot for reading


  • not sure, if i understand your question correctly, but if i do, look...
    protocol independent proxifying is Layer4 (packet layer), so you are pure tcp, no layer7 (protocol layer) redirect.
    if you want to achieve such thing, you can use a reverse proxy like haproxy or nginx, with or without ssl termination.

  • Hello,

    kess: Yes you are right, but HSTS does not forward to SSL i think

    flames: Sorry i try to explain it better:

    If i enable a redirect for Domain with proxy, then two virtual hosts will be generatet. One for http and one for ssl. With a new Option for Redirekt (Example "Force SSL") The generated virtual host for Port 80 should have:

    1. RewriteEngine On
    2. RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R=301,L]

    instead of the Proxy Configuration.

    Thanks a lot


  • Hello ShortSnow. I'm glad you're using the Proxy function and that it's working well for you. I agree that it would be ideal if there were an option to force proxy over https, and I bet wit guys are currently considering this as a possible feature to add in the future. In the meantime, I suggest redirecting http to https on your own domain so that all traffic is encrypted or temporarily using another proxy server like this one ( Thank you for your suggestion!
