How to force https using .htaccess

I’ve used the code from another answer to edit the .htaccess like so:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
</IfModule>```

...but I'm still having issues with browsers defaulting from my domain name (onestory.org) to the raw IP address.

Hello, @ahaas

You can try with some of the following rules:

The following forces any http request to be rewritten using https. For example, the following code forces a request to http://example.com to load https://example.com. It also forces directly linked resources (images, css, etc.) to use https:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

The below code when added to an .htaccess file will automatically redirect any traffic destined for http: to https:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301,NE]

Let me know how it goes.

Hi.

I have the same need as my colleague, I used the suggested code but there was no redirection, what can I have done wrong?
