    I found that when it comes to the Apache configuration, this worked better –

    Redirect / https://example.com/
    

    The IfModule ensures that your site will be live even if you have forgotten to enable SSL (a. this happened to me that may not necessarily be a BAD thing)

    the / at the end of the domain ensures that if you are giving it a full path, it will follow the path.

    I’m assuming that port 443 would also need to be opened up on your firewall for traffic to get through. Is this correct?

    Don’t you have to point to the location of your certificates?

  4. Neil says:

    You are missing the slash after the domain name.

    Redirect / https://www.yourdomain.com/

    I can’t help but think this article could use a bit more detail. Especially when it comes to explaining what is happening in the configuration files. Perhaps comments to explain what each line is acutely doing.
