Everytime I go into a secured section of my website, it gives me this popup that if I want to display nonsecure and secure items on the page. If I press yes, it shows everything fine, but there's no lock since not everything is secured. If I press no then it doesn't display all my images. Is there somethinhg I can do in Apache to script or rewrite all links with https when in ssl mode? I find it unpractical to put https on everything and have a separate set of pages for nonsecure. Pls help with any advise or experience. Thanks in advance for all the help.

So far I know You will not solve it with apache itself. You could try rewriting based on REFERER, but I guess it's easier to fix the webpage itself.
Intead of absolute links like
<IMG SRC="http://server.name/img/img1.jpg"> use relative ones
<IMG SRC="/img/img1.jpg"> the browser will try load such link with same protocol as main html document.

On second thought You can't do with apache, consider You have SSL document which have link to image starting with http://
Even if You can catch such situation on server (referer was https:// and fetching img is http://), the browser will send http:// request first anyway - right? And therefore will complain anyway.

Not a whole lot you can do.  If all source files are you your sever, then ravenpl is correct in the first post.

If you are refering to a site that is on a different sever, that you control, then that sever must also be setup for SSL and  then you could use https for SSL connections and http for non-SSL, you would need to use dynamic HTML to specify http or https.

If you are refering to a site that is not under you control and it is only non-SSL, then you are out of luck.
