I have a non-encrypted service running separate to apache on 8080. I'd like to hide it and redirect all traffic to it via SSL.
I have successfully setup proxy/reverse proxy so all requests to www.example.com go to port 8080.
However, I can still directly access the service if I go to http://example.com:8080. And it goes via http, not https. I can't block that with the firewall, since the service includes some of the links in the form http://www.example.com:8080. I have tried adding a virtualhost on :8080 and listen on 8080 but that doesn't work (and also breaks the proxy on *:443).
Could anyone suggest what I am doing wrong? All services run on the same ip address.
