http to https redirect help
I'm very new to IIS (7.5) and have a small problem I'm hoping someone can walk me through. I have HAP+ setup on a 2008-R2 server, and so far everything is working well; however I cannot find a way to allow a regular http landing page that forwards to the https HAP+ site. If I have SSL enabled on the site, any attempts to go to "http://myfiles.mysite.org" fail with a 403 forbidden error, or with a 500 error if I disable ssl.
I'd like to be able to have the staff just plug myfiles.mysite.org into their browser, and then have the default IIS webpage automatically redirect them to "https://myfiles.mysite.org/hap" - anyone have a solution I can try?

Fire up another IIS site - set it to HTTP only and have a single page that has a HTML redirect script in
Make sure your IIS site for HAP+ only has HTTPS bound against it as well.

That was my first idea/attempt, however it just throws a 500 error at me. It will work fine on the actual HAP+ server, but outside boxes fail. I'm guessing it may have something to do with my self-signed cert always showing as an error when I go to the page.

Thanks jamesfed - your idea worked, I just needed to use my wildcard cert instead of a self signed one. Up and running again!

Never a problem - @nickbro gets all the real credit though for a fantastic bit of software
