Hello,

I'm running IIS 7. I need to have all attempts at http://www.domain.com/dir1/x.asp or whatever URL in the domain be redirected to use https. I'm assuming URL Rewrite is the best way to do this.

What is the rule that would do this for me?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

When doing a URL rewrite, I use the URL Rewrite Moedule from Microsoft:  http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite

1. Once installed, close and reopen IIS.

2. Browse to the site you want to create a Rewrite rule for.

3. Open the URL Rewrite module.

4. Add a rule using the Add Rule wizard

Click the 'Add Rule(s)...' shortcut.Choose 'Blank Rule' under the 'Inbound Rules' section.Type 'HTTP to HTTPs' in the Name textbox.In the 'Match URL' section, use the following settings.In the 'Conditions' section, add a new Condition with the following settings.This is how your 'Conditions' section should look after you add the new Condition.In the 'Action' section, make the following changes.Save the changes using the 'Apply' link.After applying the changes, reopen the URL Rewrite feature.  You should see your new rule.

I've put in the redirect location as: <action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />

It works for the root URL (http://www.domain.com). However, when I try to browse directly to, say, http://www.domain.com/dir1/file.php, it redirects the browser to https://www.domain.com/index.php. It's not appending it seems.

Make sure that you do not have anything in the root web.config, the dir1 directory web.config (if one exists) or the fie.php file that redirects to index.php.

Thanks. It turned out to be another URL Rewrite entry ahead of it that was causing the issue.
