I have near to no experience with .htacces but i need to do the following

I have a ssl certificate for the whole website. But i only want to have a few pages secured the ssl.

example

http://www.vekto.nl/user_login.php
change to
https://www.vekto.nl/user_login.php

Now this is a easy redirect but i want a if statement implemented.

Because if the page is anything other than user_login.php i want to switch back to http

I'm presuming that you have already set up SSL on your server? If not, it looks like you're running Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6 so you will want to use this guide: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299875

In terms of enabling https for the login page only via your .htaccess, I'm not entirely sure that's possible. If you're using cookies to pass sessions between pages, I don't believe you can pass them from https to http pages (or vice-versa). This post explains better than I can: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=128416

Perhaps your solution will be a little more complicated?

Sorry, just re-read the categories you posted your question in and noticed 'Apache'. I guess Netcraft is misreporting your site: http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph?site=www.vekto.nl

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . friendly_url.php [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^vekto\.nl [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.vekto.nl/$1 [L,R=301]

</IfModule>

This is what is have now and it works.

I would like to add this, but not for a folder just for a page

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} payment
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.vekto.nl/payment/$1 [R,L]

If the user is not on one of the pages, i want to have a rule that it switches back to http.

Not fully understanding the 2 posts because i can redirect in my htacces. Just don't want to redirect a root folder, but a page

Just alter the port and negate the URL match e.g.
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ! (payment|login|somethingElse)                           [NC]
RewriteRule .*                            http://www.vekto.nl/payment%{REQUEST_URI}  [R,L]

Open in new window

Typo:
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ! (payment|login|somethingElse)                           [NC]
RewriteRule .*                            http://www.vekto.nl%{REQUEST_URI}  [R,L]

Thanks arober11

I tried it but didn't work for me

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ! (user_login|user_home|user_profile|user_orders|order_info) [NC]
RewriteRule .* http://www.vekto.nl%{REQUEST_URI}  [R,L]

When i type

https://www.vekto.nl/user_login.php it redirects to http

Hi, next step is to add a temporary log file to the config, restart apache, surf for a few min's, then have a look at the log e.g.

{code}
RewriteLog  /temp/tmp-rewritelog
RewriteLogLevel 9
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(user_login|user_home|user_profile|user_orders|order_info) [NC]
RewriteRule .*                             http://www.vekto.nl%{REQUEST_URI}  [R=301,L]
{code}
