The SSL Redirect plugin is able to redirect non-secure HTTP-pages to secure HTTPS-pages, and back again. Which pages need to be served through SSL and which not, can be configured through plugin parameters: Per Menu-Item, per component, etcetera.
The Joomla! Global Configuration allows you to configure SSL, but if a visitor enters a Joomla! page through non-HTTPS, this visitor is not automatically redirected. Also you can't enable SSL for just some pages, while all other pages are served through regular HTTP.
While the Apache htaccess file can be configured to contain RewriteRules for this, it is much more complicated and error-prawn. This is the main reason why the Yireo SSL Redirect plugin was developed.
- To install this plugin, download it from the download-section on this site to your computer.

Whoops, a page not found. But instead of displaying an ugly error, why not help your visitors find the right page? Or even better: Let Joomla! find the right page for you.
Development sites are sometimes hosted on publicly available sites, while access is still unwanted. This plugin allows for HTTP authentication based on Joomla! users.
Hosting images, stylesheets or files on a remote location, might save bandwidth - thus increase performance. This plugin implements a static server in Joomla!.
