Redirect from http to https happening automatically?


#1

I had on my todo list to setup http to https for my brother’s site since he added a shopping cart (I’d already got the cert), but today when I go to actually do it it seems to be happening automatically, without any .htaccess file.

Is this something dreamhost has done? The knowledgebase suggests you still need to setup a .htaccess file.

It’s not possible to redirect from http to https . You need to setup it using google webmaster tools.
or you can follow this step using htaccess: Redirecting HTTP to HTTPS Using .htaccess File: Step by Step:

Actually I figured out what’s happening - my brother installed a wordpress plugin to do the redirect that I wasn’t aware of.
