How to redirect http to https on a fully static web page


Hello this is my first question I’m asking here.
Please advise if you think I can improve the question.

We’re hosting our web page with the OVH web hosting solution “Professional 2010”

And we activated https:// access via LetsEncrypt.

The page we have is a fully static page:

Is there any way I can achieve following:

Anybody who accesses our site with http://oursite should be redirected to https://oursite

If I had apache / nginx I would know how to do it, but I’m not sure how to achieve this with the OVH “Professional 2010” solution.

Any advice is welcome



You need to do this via the .htaccess file.

Basically put a htaccess file in the base of your directory with the following contents:

RewriteEngine on

 # force ssl
RewriteCond     %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule     ^(.*)$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R]

this answer is wildly available on google you should google before you post :wink:
