  • Connect to the appliance via SSH using the default login of ID: root and PW: vmturbo
  • Run the following command to edit the httpd.conf file
    • vi /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
  • Add the following text to the end of this file
    • <VirtualHost *:80>
         Redirect / https://<your appliance IP>/
  • Save the file by hitting ESC and typing ":wq!" (no quotes) and hitting Enter
  • Run the following command to restart the Apache webserver
    • /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
