How do I setup redirection from HTTP to HTTPS?

Follow the steps given below to setup the redirection from HTTP to HTTPS,

 

  1. Go to the folder C:\ManageEngine\ServiceDeskPlus-MSP\server\default\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat50.sar and open the file server.xml with WordPad. Find the below entry in the file server.xml
    <¡– A HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 –>
    <¡– The compression parameters are taken from the default Tomcat server.xml–>
    <¡–Connector port=”8080” address=”${jboss.bind.address}”
    maxThreads=”150″ minSpareThreads=”25″ maxSpareThreads=”75″
    enableLookups=”false” redirectPort=”8443” acceptCount=”100″
    connectionTimeout=”20000″ disableUploadTimeout=”true”
    compression=”off”
    compressionMinSize=”2048″
    setBodyEncodingForURI=”true”
    noCompressionUserAgents=”gozilla, traviata”
    compressableMimeType=”text/html,text/xml,text/plain”/>

    Remove ‘¡–‘ which is before Connector port=”8080″ address=”${jboss.bind.address}” and then remove — which is after compressableMimeType=”text/html,text/xml,text/plain”/

    Change the value 8080 to 80 and 8443 to 443 and save the file.
    So after the changes the entry should be as shown below.

    <¡– A HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 –>
    <¡– The compression parameters are taken from the default Tomcat server.xml–>
    <Connector port=”80” address=”${jboss.bind.address}”
    maxThreads=”150″ minSpareThreads=”25″ maxSpareThreads=”75″
    enableLookups=”false” redirectPort=”443” acceptCount=”100″
    connectionTimeout=”20000″ disableUploadTimeout=”true”
    compression=”off”
    compressionMinSize=”2048″
    setBodyEncodingForURI=”true”
    noCompressionUserAgents=”gozilla, traviata”
    compressableMimeType=”text/html,text/xml,text/plain”/>

2. Go to the folderC:\ManageEngine\ServiceDeskPlus-MSP\applications\extracted\AdventNetServiceDesk.eear\

AdventNetServiceDeskWC.ear\AdventNetServiceDesk.war\WEB-INF
Edit the web.xml file and search for the content below and add the lines in bold / highlighted.
