Apache, redirect to HTTPS everything except some files...

As title…

I have a static redirect from HTTP to HTTPS using virtual hosts and apache…

I have used this config.

 <virtualhost *:80="">DocumentRoot /home/mydomain/public_html
      ServerName www.mydomain.org
      ServerAlias www.mydomain.org
      ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/mydomain/error_log
      CustomLog /var/log/httpd/mydomain/access_log common
      Redirect permanent / https://www.mydomain.org</virtualhost> 
 <virtualhost _default_:8443="">DocumentRoot /home/mydomain/public_html
      ServerName www.mydomain.org
      ServerAlias www.mydomain.org
      ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/mydomain/error_log
      CustomLog /var/log/httpd/mydomain/access_log common</virtualhost> 

I would like to redirect all except those files




How can I do it?

I know that I could use RedirectMatch instead of Redirect but what is the correct syntax?

You should be able to make this work using a RewriteRule, such as the one outlined in the example here. For convenience, I've copied the example rule into the code block below:

RewriteEngine On

# Go to https if not on /your-page-url/

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} =80
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} !/your-page-url/ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

# Go to http if on /your-page-url/

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !=80
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} /your-page-url/ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
