I know there already is a discussion about Plone and https; however, I still cannot find the answer to my question. After installing the https patch for Zope by placing it into the zope/zinstance/products folder, I then enabled https in the WebFaction control panel for my zope application. Then I wanted my http site to redirect to the https site. I tried to follow the directions here however, when I make a static application, set it to http, and make the .htaccess file, I receive a 500 internal server error when I try to acces the http site. (the https site works fine)

Hi,

Did you try with the method 2 listed here?

following the previous discussion (http://community.webfaction.com/questions/4188/plone-via-https) it was suggested that buildout will wipe the patch on method #2. Also, I don't think that's the problem because I can access the plone site on https. It's the redirect that's the problem.

Can you try the rewrite rules listed here in your .htaccess?
