Subject: [[email protected]] RewriteRule : Altering the current
protocol



Hello,
I have a configuration question regarding RewriteRule.

We have a SSL terminator in front of our Apache, which redirect traffic to
different port based virtual host depending on which protocol the connection
came from.
As a result, Apache is only responding to HTTP requests.

We have RewriteRule that perform relative 301 and 302 redirections.

Exemple: RewriteRule ^/deprecatedPage.html$ / [R=301,L,E=nocache:1]

According to the documentations:
"If a fully-qualified URL is specified (that is, including http://servername/) then
a redirect will be issued to that location. Otherwise, the *current protocol*,
servername, and port number will be used to generate the URL sent with the redirect.
"

Because of the current protocol clause, all URL that are sent to a https
address are redirected back to http. We have a catch all http to https
redirection too, but that cause two redirections in a row we would like to
avoid.

Other than inputing the absolute URL to the destination, is it possible to
change the 'current protocol' so that mod_rewrite put https rather than http?

I tried SetEnv SERVER_PROTOCOL=https without success.

Thanks
