apache rewrite rules to redirect http(s) olddomian.com to newdomain.com
i made a custom  VirtualHost .conf file for apache for my old domian to redirect every request to httpS new domain but it isn't working...?
i get either the old host or some an invalid URL... both FireFox and Chome show errors like this:
The owner of OldDomian.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website. The certificate is only valid for NewDomain.com.

a copy of the apache.conf VirtualHost config:
<VirtualHost 129.125.125.128:80>
ServerName  OldSiteHost.com
ServerAlias www.OldSiteHost.com
ServerAlias OldSiteHost.com

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =OldSiteHost.com [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.newcorp.OldSiteHost.com [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =newcorp.OldSiteHost.com [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.OldSiteHost.com
RewriteRule ^ https://NewSiteHost.com/ [END,NE,R=permanent]

</VirtualHost>
