Mike,

You should be okay PTF level wise. I'm pretty sure URL rewriting was working 
properly prior to V5R2 being released.

Does the path /www/logs exist? I don't think that the server will create it 
automatically. Also, if you have several server instances running, you probably 
want to change the path to logs/rewrite.log so it goes in the log directory for 
that instance.

Also, how well do you understand regular expressions? You can find several 
tutorials here: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=regex+tutorial and the 
book "Professional Apache 2.0" also has a tutorial in it.

Finally, here's an example I use to do the opposite of what you want to 
accomplish:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteLog logs/rewrite.log
RewriteLogLevel 0
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !consumersplus\.thomsonlearning\.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R=permanent]

If you change the last line to:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}$1 [R=permanent]

it should do what you want.

What it's doing is when the host name doesn't match 
consumersplus.thomsonlearning.com, it's redirecting to the non-SSL version of 
the URL. Since you should never get that host name on your server, changing the 
last line should do exactly what you want.

Also, you'll want to make sure that you either have two server instances 
running (one on port 80 and the other on port 443) or have virtual hosts (see 
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/name-based.html) set up (one on port 
80, the other on 443) so you don't get into a redirection loop.

Matt

No, there is not.
