I am trying to change every link and page in a website from http to https which is hosted on IIS 6.  How can I do that without trying to track down every page and have it redirect?

      Why do you need change protocol specification? Are you using relative or absolute path references?

    I was told to change a site from http to https because of specific reasons.  So how would I do that?

    from the phrase "change a site from http to https", I think about put a certificate on server and configure web site to use 443 port

    Well, keep in mind that there are other sites on the server.

    You can install a certificate at the server on the certificate storage, but you specify which site use ssl or not (https or http protocol)
