Redirect to HTTPS

Hi There,

For the life of me I cannot get the http to redirect to https. Everything is supposed to be secure but as of now you can get to the non-secure version.

If I enable the redirect from within the IIS gui to "https://<FULL DOMAIN>" and then go to the site, I get a message that the site is in an infinite loop?

Thanks for your help!

you can use the urlrewrite
<rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
  <match url="(.*)" />
    <conditions>
      <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
    </conditions>
  <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Found" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
</rule>

Open in new window


or a custom error page to redirect to https

Perfect! But I had to use the following code:

<rewrite>
      <rules>
      <rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
              <match url="(.*)" />
                <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
                </conditions>
              <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Found" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
      </rule>
      </rules>
      </rewrite>
