Foswiki on GitHub is open for business! Next release meeting: Monday September 15, 1300Z

HttpsRedirectPlugin

Redirect authenticated users to HTTPS URL.

Usage

The HTTPS redirect plug-in is designed to help you run a web site where guest users can access pages through HTTP and authenticated users will be forced to use HTTPS. Simply activate the plug-in from configure to take advantage of its functionality. Once enabled it will force authenticated users to use HTTPS by redirecting them to HTTPS URL if needed. Guests will be redirected to HTTPS only when accessing the login screen.

Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
