Hi All,

Just to let you all know that I fixed the http to https issue by using 
the following rule on Ubuntu 12.04 in the apache2 default config file.

<VirtualHost *:80>
         ServerAdmin webmaster at localhost
         RewriteEngine on
         RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
         RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [NC,R,L]
         DocumentRoot /var/www

Hope that helps someone

Best wishes
Jimmy
