http to https forwarding...

Hi, can someone let me know how I can forward requests to http://mydomain.com to https://mydomain.com? I am running a Apache2 on an ubuntu 12.04 Linux server. My current
sites-available/default file is as attached.

<VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        ServerName mydoamin.com:443
        DocumentRoot /var/www
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None
        </Directory>
        <Directory /var/www/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all
        </Directory>

        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
        <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
                AllowOverride None
                Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
        </Directory>

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel warn

        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/SSL/crt/mydomain.com.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/SSL/private/mydomain.com.key
        SSLCertificateChainFile /usr/local/SSL/crt/intermediate.crt
</VirtualHost>

Add a new virtualhost that listens on port 80, and use mod_rewrite to perform the redirect.

Something like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        ServerName mydoamin.com
       
        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
        RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
</VirtualHost>
