I am using virtual host to redirect but it does not seem to work when I type the url in the browser with https://

if I use http:// in the browser, the redirect works perfectly

The http and https sites will be specified separately in your Apache configuration. If you have configured the redirect in your virtualhost file you’ll need to make sure it appears in both the http and https virtualhosts. If you are using an .htaccess file you’ll need to make sure that both VirtualHosts have “AllowOverride All” set which allows apache to process directives in .htaccess files.
