  • It's a rather odd client request, but I am wondering if this is even possible. They are wanting if a user goes to https://domain.com/page.html it will get redirected straight to http://domain.com/page.html, and not recieve any "is this the page you were looking for" errors in any browser, and are not interested in purchasing a ssl certificate.

    I found the instructions here for doing such on this page: http://www.jafaloo.com/2012/01/13/https-to-http-redirection-in-nginx/

    server {
                     listen 443;
                     server_name example.com;
                     ssl on;
                     rewrite ^ http://$server_name$request_uri? permanent;  //Magic line
                     [.....]
    }
    


    From my understanding it's going to attempt to establish the SSL/TLS connection before any traffic is sent. Even with that redirect above it's still going to create a "warning" message before it sends the page to the right http address.

    Is this correct? or does anyone else have a suggestion?

    Thanks!
