I have a Drupal 8 site hosted on an Apache Server. There are 2 virtuals hosts :
- one listening on port 80, which redirects everything to HTTPS
- one listening on port 443 which serves the htdocs directory where the Drupal site is located
Everything works well, except for the "Configuration synchronization" full export. When I click the "Export" button, I'm redirected to the home page, without any message or log.
Enabling the console on my web browser, I saw these calls :
POST https://my.domain.fr/admin/config/development/configuration/full/export [HTTP/1.1 303 See Other 86 ms] GET http://my.domain.fr/admin/config/development/configuration/full/export-download [HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently 101 ms] GET https://my.domain.fr/ [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 183 ms]
The download process of the config file seems to be killed by the redirection.
The second URL (GET http) is sent by Drupal in the response to the first call, in the "Location" header.
How can I force Drupal to send only HTTPS url, even in the Location header in this precise case ?

Edit2: I'm having the same trouble with the RSS link on the site : on the page returned by
https://my.domain.fr, the RSS link is
Edit3: Found the solution for the export problem (see answer below). Still not a solution for the RSS link, but it's not the main subject of this post.
