Could do a redirect with your .htaccess file. I'm typing this off the top of my head, but should be pretty close; might need to Google it to be sure though. Edit this to suit your needs.

This is assuming you have the rewrite module running in Apache.

Code: Select all
RewriteEngine on

# Redirect /directory_or_file_name to https
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /directory_or_file_name
RewriteRule ^(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}$1 [R,L]

That should pick up any references to a particular file or directory, and if it's connecting with regular HTTP, it'll rewrite the URL to connect via HTTPS instead. Check the Apache manual on the rewrite module for more info.
