Add these rules to the top of the .htaccess file in your web root:

Rich (BB code):
	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
	RewriteRule ^(pages/sales/?)$ https://domain.com/$1 [R,L]
	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
	RewriteRule ^(pages/sales/?)$ - [S=1]
	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

Thanks jake, but sadly is not working, it gives me a 404 for the entire site when I try it with my xenforo site. On another (wordpress) site I get this:

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Hmm. Try this:

Rich (BB code):
	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
	RewriteRule ^(pages/sales/?)$ https://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

	RewriteRule ^(pages/sales/?)$ - [S=1]
	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R,L]
The logic is a bit squirrelly, but I think this new order of rules will work correctly, whereas the old order was an error on my part.

uhhhh, or this is probably better...

Rich (BB code):
	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
	RewriteRule ^(pages/sales/?)$ https://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

	RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 443
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !pages/sales/?$
	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

Thanks for your suggestions Jake, and I apologise as I meant to reply sooner.

So far the tests I have done are still not working. I will try again today, doublechecking in case I got something wrong. It has been suggested by my host @MattW that the issue may be that /pages/ is not a real folder as such.

I get the same issue when I try on my Wordpress site which again has a URL structure that looks like a real directory on the server but isn't.

EDIT: I have also tried doing a redirect via cpanel and that doesn't work either.

Hello, how do I redirect ONLY my "domain.com/forums/" to "domain.com/pages/page-title/" without disrupting my actual forums & threads where users are posting?

Would want these type of links to remain active and working - domain.com/forums/forum-title/

Would like to only redirect the main /forums/ page.

Similar question: I would like to force HTTPS only on the /account directory.

I found some instructions that suggested placing an .htaccess file in the /account directory, but there is not an actual directory on the server by this name.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? What I am trying to do is secure the account upgrades page for Stripe credit card entry.

Thanks.

I apparently failed to create a working rule for this. But this is probably not advisable anyways. Just make everything https to ensure consistency and to avoid possible problems with mixed content and cookies.
