You can configure the platform so that all requests are routed through HTTPS by default.

Before going through the following steps, be sure to enable SSL (HTTPS). For more information, please see Enabling SSL Encryption.

  1. Locate the file /usr/local/jive/etc/httpd/sites/default.conf and open it with with a text editor.
  2. In the file, look for the text "RewriteEngine On". After that line, add the following lines:
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
  3. Restart the Jive HTTPD (Linux) service by running the restart command as root.
