Secure transactions, https, 301 re-directs

Secure transactions, https, 301 re-directs

In a reply by Jason to secure eCart it is suggested redirecting all http traffic to the https server.


So, I created a 301 Re-Direct .htaccess file and placed it in my root directory.
This works great, all traffic is directed to the https server.

This is the .htaccess file.
rewriteengine on
rewritecond %{HTTPS} off
rewritecond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*$
rewriterule ^ "https\:\/\/247sign\.com\/" [R=301,L] #*************

rewritecond %{http_host} ^ [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$$1 [r=301,nc]

However, The presence of the .htaccess file causes "All pages" to re-direct. So as soon as I click continue at PayPal it sends me back to my home page and not to the Submit Order Page.
Obviously, I need PayPal to send the customer to the Submit Order page and not to the Home Page.

How can I correct this?

http:// redirect entire site to https:// - Works with Paypal

This is where I got the redirect.....

This is what it looks like.....
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

This is how I feel. :D

Thank you Jason for the link.
AWESOME but a bit advanced at the moment!
NOTE: The redirect syntax in my previous post was created using the online software from :eek: lol
