We are runnning Rails 2.1/Mongrel/Apache setup and I’m attempting to
configure Rails/Apache to force ssl. I’ve added the following line in
my httpd-ssl.conf file, under the VirtualHost:
RequestHeader set X_FORWARDED_PROTO ‘https’
The redirect does not take place and instead we are seeing the entire
contents of the public directory in the web browser. When going to
https://, everything works great…just can’t get the redirect to work.
