When a SSL certificate is installed on the server, the website is not available via a secure HTTPS connection by default. It is necessary to add “https” to a URL every time one needs to be securely connected. The best way to achieve maximum security for website visitors is to enable an automatic redirect from HTTP to HTTPS.

If you have some control panel installed over Apache, it is necessary to set up redirects in the panel itself and not on the server to avoid redirect loops or incorrect module execution. You can check the guide on how to set up HTTPS redirect in cPanel here.

The redirect should be created on Apache directly if cPanel or any other control panel or GUI (graphical user interface) is not used.

Before setting up the redirect, please make sure that the following modules are enabled. Please run the commands below:

sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo a2enmod ssl

If both modules are enabled, you will see the following...

I'm using Apache 2.4, and I set up two virtual directories. One requires SSL, and the other one redirects to it.

If a user attempts to visit

without /derp existing, they correctly get a 404. But when a user visits

, Apache incorrectly redirects the user to


, removing the slash between the path and the domain name.

I have no idea what would be causing this.

The following is the setup of my Virtual Host.

DocumentRoot "C:\Users\derp\Documents\Web Projects\derp"
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile "C:\Apache24\certs\cert.cer"
SSLCertificateKeyFile "C:\Apache24\certs\key.key"

There are two methods for setting up Drupal with Apache on Ubuntu. The first (preferred) method edits the virtual host configuration, which is the default setup on Ubuntu (even for a single-site web server). The second edits the main apache2.conf, which is typical for an older setup.

Step 1 - Method A: "Virtual Host" Setup

First, from the Linux command line, enable the rewrite module for apache with this command:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

You can check to see if this worked by running:

sudo apache2ctl -M

and seeing if rewrite_module is on the list.

Next, use an editor (such as nano) to edit the appropriate Apache configuration file for your Drupal site in the /etc/apache2/sites-available/ directory. For a single site, the file is /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf; if you have multiple sites, the file names should reflect the names of the sites to which they refer. Thus, to edit the default site configuration, use sudo nano...

You can use it in your business to host your website or run and test various applications. The Apache service is launched automatically when you start Windows.
