I have done something like this.
For the site I am working on, the user must log on. At the logon screen I

header ("Location: https://logon_screen";);

every page has an include that checks $HTTPS as part of the sessions and
validation. If https!="on" then it kicks you back to the logon screen.

you could do the same using

header ("Location: https://$SERVER_NAME/$PHP_SELF";);

I think

Don't know if that's what you're after, but it's what I've done and I have a
high index of suspicion that it is working...
