I want to redirect to Because it is not working by default.
So for achieving this, i was thinking of using redir directive but didn’t find any example of using redir in json format file.

Caddy sets up Automatic HTTPS if your config has a host matcher with a valid domain, which enables port 80 implicitly for the HTTP to HTTPS redirects and to solve ACME HTTP challenges.

When learning how to write JSON configs, I strongly recommend writing what you want with the Caddyfile first, then running caddy adapt --pretty to see the underlying JSON config.

But anyways, if you do ever need to do a redirect manually, you do it with the static_response handler plus the setting the Location header on that response (which is how redirects are performed)
