I am trying to force http://www.mydomain.com/page to https://www.mydomain.com/page into ssl.  This is only a single permalink wordpress page.  In my .htaccess I have this  but it doesn't seem to work.  I am using the latest version of Wordpress

#Force secure Page/post
<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
#If current port is 80 (http)
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
#Then rewrite to HTTPS
#replace URI after the ^ with your wordpress permalink
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/page
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule .? https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,S=1,R=301]
</ifmodule>

#Escape secure form page/post
<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c>
#if current port is 443 (https)
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^443$
#and you’re NOT on the page you specified above rewrite to http
#Replace URI after the ^ with the same permalink as above
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/page
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule .? http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
</ifmodule>

#start wordpress
<ifmodule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
#RewriteBase /wordpress/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
</ifmodule>

Hello,

Try the below code in your .htaccess file:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

# redirect for http /buy page
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} =80
RewriteRule ^page/?$ https://mydomain.com/page [R=301,QSA,L,NE]

Hope that helps you

Thanks
Edwin

I don't think that will work it probably has to do something with wordpresss.  I tried it in my code but it says page not found.

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Options +FollowSymLinks
# redirect for http /buy page
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} =80
RewriteRule ^page/?$ https://mydomain.com/shop [R=301,QSA,L,NE]

</IfModule>

# END WordPress

Change "page/" to your page name and mydomain.com/shop to your domain

Instead of screwing around with .htaccess, try this plugin:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-https/

Just easier...

That plugin is out of date and hasn't been updated in while.

Nope.  It hasn't been updated because the functionality it provides doesn't need an update. We use it on all our sites and it's safe and secure.
