I have a domain on one server which should redirect all traffic (HTTP and HTTPS) to another server. To do so for HTTPS I need to create a cert.

This is my config working for the challenge on 80:

Code:
<VirtualHost _default_:80>
        ServerAdmin hello@my.tld
        ServerName my.tld

        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
                RewriteEngine on

                RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\.well\-known
                RewriteRule - [L]
        </IfModule>

        <IfModule mod_alias.c>
                RedirectMatch "^/$" "https://www.my.tld"
        </IfModule>
</VirtualHost>


Code:
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
        SSLStaplingCache shmcb:${APACHE_RUN_DIR}/ssl_ocache(128000)
        <VirtualHost *:443>
                ServerAdmin hello@my.tld
                ServerName my.tld

                RedirectPermanent / https://www.my.tld/

                <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
                        SSLEngine on
                        SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/my.tld/fullchain.pem
                        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/my.tld/privkey.pem
                 </IfModule>
        </VirtualHost>
</IfModule>


In this setup I can generate the Let's Encrypt certs and most of the redirects work, but not all of them.

Works:

https://www.my.tld/faq
http://www.my.tld/faq
https://my.tld/faq

Fails:

http://my.tld/faq


To cut is short: What will I have to add to keep the cert challenge on the server (HTTP) but redirect everything else for HTTP to the other server.

If I replace

Code:
 <IfModule mod_alias.c>
                RedirectMatch "^/$" "https://www.my.tld"
        </IfModule>


by

Code:
RedirectPermanent / https://www.my.tld/


all four redirects work however the challenge fails since it does not stay on the server but is also being redirected to the other server.

If I do something like

Code:
RewriteRule   "^/(.+)"  "https://www.my.tld/$1"  [R,L]


or

Code:
RedirectMatch "^/(.*)" "http://www.my.tld/$1"


the redirecting works but the cert challenge fails since this is also being directed.

I am clueless on how to move forward here. Any help is very much appreciated.

Maybe change

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\.well\-known
RewriteRule - [L]
</IfModule>

<IfModule mod_alias.c>
RedirectMatch "^/$" "https://www.my.tld"
</IfModule>

to:

RewriteEngine on (this first section I have on all servers):

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/\.well\-known(.*) [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/md-status [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/server-status
Rewriterule - - [L]


RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://my.tld/$ [L,R=301]
