THX Alzhao,

that’s are a interesting way to do it by hand that possible work only up to the next FW update.

The Plugin “lighttpd-mod-redirect” is available on GL routers. Its possible to do the asked one or at minimum a redirection from http to https on possible a more easy way ?


Yes it is possible. https browser warning is a problem so we don’t put this in development schedule.

To answer a “error message” onetime by Yes I like to stop to blow my data around by a good known unsecure way, is a small price for the benefit of a little bit more security.

Anything to do before and after installing the “lighttpd-mod-redirect” Plugin, pe. configure a menue or a file ?

Now I installed the “lighttpd-mod-redirect” plugin. Its looks like it dosnt change anything for me. It can be, its need to configure some thing on a not known place, by me.

I didn’t try. But for sure you need to config that.

Pls check this post configuration - Lighttpd 1.4.45 - HTTP to HTTPS redirects not replacing ${url.authority}${url.path}${qsa} - Server Fault
