I have an apache server running normally on port 80 and securely on port 443 as standard.  I only want connections to the secure site but i dont want to just comment out the Listen 80 line in the apache config document rather I would like it if someone connects to port 80, only 1 document can be viewed and all other pages will be shown as 404.  On this document would be a short ammount of text saying, this server is only available over a secure connection, please click the link below to connect securly, clicking the link would r-direct the user to https:// rather that http://

Anyone know how this is possible ??

Thanks !

Sure - set up the configuration so that the SSL pages and the non-secure pages point to different document roots.  For example:

<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80>
ServerName www.mydomain.com
ServerAlias mydomain.com
DocumentRoot /home/user/www
...
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:443>
ServerName www.mydomain.com
ServerAlias mydomain.com
DocumentRoot /home/user/securewww
...
</VirtualHost>
