We are using Liferay 6.1

We are having an issue implementing a rewrite rule that properly direct all users to a secure connection (ie. HTTPS) for any of our Virtual Hosts.

We have put in place the appropriate rewrite rules into our web.config file in IIS and have tested them with the main domain and it works just fine, but the rewrite fails for any Virtual Hosts that we have setup.

Right now, when a user accesses they see a 404 error. If they access it via they see the site just fine. Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Check out this article to see how to redirect http to https in IIS with tomcat.

1.) Open IIS and right click on the website you wish to redirect to https and select “edit bindings”.

2.) Change the port number to an unused port. For example: 8888

3.) Go to the SSL settings of the site and select “require SSL”

4.) Create a brand new IIS website by right clicking on the root node and selecting New -> web site. Choose port 80

5.) In the new website find the http redirection module in the actions pane. Click the check box and type in the URL of your website using https.
