Apache: redirect to https before AUTH for server-status

view story

http://serverfault.com – I want to force https and basic auth for server-status output (mod_status). If I enable auth and user asks for http://site/server-status apache first asks for pass, then redirects to httpS, then asks for pass again. This question is similar to Apache - Redirect to https before AUTH and force https with apache before .htpasswd but I cannot get it work because we are speaking not about generic folder but Location structure. My config (shortly) is as follows: <Location /server-status> SSLRequireSSL <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine on RewriteBase /ser (HowTos)
