I have an SSL certificate installed on my Apache server where I am doing some WordPress development. I am new to the use and configuration of the SSL certificate however and am looking for help.
I have the certificate installed on the server and I believe that I need to configure the htacess document to define the pages or folders in which I need the browser to be forced to go to its HTTPs address. I have some examples below which I would need a little help with to configure as examples.
I would like to ensure that when users are viewing the Http://www.domain.com/newsletter/signup.html URL they can only ever see Https://www.domain.com/newsletter/signup.html - i.e. they cannot see the HTTP unsecure version.
With the Http://www.domain.com/portal URL I would like to ensure *ALL* the pages and files held within this folder are only ever viewed via HTTPs also.
Also as a general question, is there more than one way of doing this? I have been reading up on the internet to see if I can find out more information about this however it appears that there are different techniques to doing this - is there a standard recommended one at all thats generally accepted as the normal one?
Many thanks in advance.
