I need to find a solution to a problem i am having with certain pages on my website.  At the moment i have an SSL certificate for my Drupal site, and a rewrite rule forcing every page to be HTTPS.

The problem i have is for certain pages
https://www.drughelpdesk.com/drug-counselor-video-blog
https://www.drughelpdesk.com/Drug-Counselor-Video-Blog/Restoring-Trust-After-Drug-Addiction

I get a security warning in Internet Explorer "Only Secure Content is Displayed .... Show all content" and people need to click "show all content" to beable to view the video in IE.  

What i need somebody to do for me is to provide me with the Apache code which will change the above 2 pages to plain HTTP: while keeping the rest of the site secure HTTPS.   htaccess.txt

Simple add the following rule:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS}             on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (drug-counselor-video-blog|Restoring-Trust-After-Drug-Addiction)
RewriteRule  .*                          http://www.drughelpdesk.com%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]

and change this rule:

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule  .*                          https://www.drughelpdesk.com%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]

to this:

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(drug-counselor-video-blog|Restoring-Trust-After-Drug-Addiction)
RewriteRule  .*                          https://www.drughelpdesk.com%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]

I'm not sure if Drupal  will let u add PHP code or not but if it does  is then
Add this code to the php pages  you want to redirect



<?php 

if  ( $_SERVER['HTTPS'] ) 

        { 

                $host = $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']; 

                $request_uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; 

                $good_url = "http://" . $host . $request_uri; 





                header( "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" ); 

                header( "Location: $good_url" ); 

                exit; 

        } 

?>

Sage::

I followed your solution, and now my whole site i get

This web page has a redirect loop.

The web page at https://www.drughelpdesk.com/index.php?q=about-us has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

What do i do ?

Quickest solution would be to add "index.php" to the exclusion list in just the HTTP->HTTPS rule e.g.


RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(drug-counselor-video-blog|Restoring-Trust-After-Drug-Addiction|index\.php)
RewriteRule  .*                          https://www.drughelpdesk.com%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]


But you should possibly give some thought to what needs to be served via HTTPS rather than HTTP, guessing you only need to protect the login / registration pages, rather than the whole site.

I found a solution to this,  which did not involve apache code.  I found one of the php files in the vimeo module of my drupal installation, and change https://ww.vimeo.com/video   to https://www.secure.vimeo.com/video   and that has solved the problem.  Sorry for wasting peoples times.

Regards.

The answer was not regarding apache eventually, it was actually changing the link in vimeo.inc  in my drupal modual.  

changing www.vimeo.com/vidoevariable to www.secure.vimeo.com/vidoevariable   solves the problem.
