Redirecting all traffic (when Varnish is not used)

To redirect all traffic from HTTP to HTTPS, open the server.rewrites with your editor:

Then add the following snippet:

Now finish saving the option using CTRL+o followed by CTRL+x

To check if all went well, check if /data/web/nginx/nginx_error_output is present containing an error message. If you can’t find this file, your config reload went well.

Now test your result by visiting the domain!

It is also possible to selectively redirect to HTTP or HTTPS depending on the domain, by using a mapping.

Redirecting all traffic to https and www

If you want to redirect your domain to both https and www, add this snippet to server.rewrites

Redirecting to HTTPS when using Varnish

If you are using Varnish on your Hypernode, the given redirect will be cached by Varnish causing the site to go down with a too many redirects error, as the redirect will be served from the cache on both HTTP and HTTPS.

To resolve this, make use of a public.rewrites instead of a server.rewrites

All files in /data/web/nginx starting with public.* will be included in front of the Varnish instance, and will therefore not be cached.
