Address redirection questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have two issues that are causing a pain in my bottom side.

    1. I cannot get the Http to Https redirect to work for my site. I fiddled with URL Rewrite but cant get it to work with my 2013 site. It seems to work fine with wss3.0 though. My aam's are internal http to public default https. I just get a 404 when I try the http address.

    2. I have to type the /sites/main at the end of my url to get to my main site collection. If I try just https://sp.companyname.com it will give this error: 

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Date: Tue, 12 Aug 2014 16:29:58 GMT Connection: close

    I have very limited experience with IIS and basic with sharepoint. Do you guys know what I am missing?

  • in regards to number 2, it looks like there is no root site collection. No site collection means no HTTP response. This is also poor usability. You should ALWAYS assume that the root site collection is the entry point for your SharePoint web application.

  • Scott, you nailed it! When I started messing with managed paths I got caught up using /Sites for all my site collections and overlooked the Root!

    Thanks mate! Now I just need to figure out that pesky http to https redirection.
