Hi,

I need to redirect my wepage of an application from http to https without providing the port number in apache.

Currently i have done like below
<VirtualHost *:80>
      Redirect /hello.html https://xxx.xx.xx.xxx:448/contact_us.html
</VirtualHost>

but i need something like

<VirtualHost *:80>
      Redirect /hello.html https://xxx.xx.xx.xxx/contact_us.html
</VirtualHost>


SSL Configuration

<VirtualHost xxx.xx.xx.xxx:448>
        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.key
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html
        ServerName 172.29.57.141
</VirtualHost>


What i need is that the server should not take the port in https url, as my site is running at root

http://xxx.xx.xx.xxx/

You need to change the port 448 to port 443.  443 is the 'normal' HTTPS port and will be used if you do Not select a port number.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Secure

<VirtualHost xxx.xx.xx.xxx:443>

is there any other way or mapping which can be done to set the port 448 as default port so that the port is not displayed

No.  You would have to rewrite all the browsers and web servers in the world to change that.  Why is port 448 important?
