How to redirect all traffic to https & non-www ?

I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 incl. SSL certificate via Serverpilot. I’m looking for a way to redirect all website traffic in the following order:

all http --> https all www --> non-www

Here’s what I have in my htaccess file:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)
RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%1/$1 [R=301,L]

This works in Firefox but in Chrome & Safari (incl. iOS) it doesn’t redirect to https if I call my website via “non-ssl / non-www”.

To do that using nginx only, add the following server blocks:

server {
        listen 80;

        return 301$request_uri;

server {
        listen 443 spdy;

        ssl_certificate /path/to/domain.crt;
        ssl_certificate_key /path/to/domain.key;


        return 301$request_uri;

Don’t forget to restart/reload nginx so that the changes take effect.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off RewriteRule (.*){REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301,NC]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC] RewriteRule (.*){REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301,NC]

this work absolutely fine and conditions are perfectely set for www to non www redirect with https

thanks. for this information. god bless u.

I cannot for the life of me get all non-www requests on my WordPress site to redirect to www. Eg. does not resolve to www.

I also need all requests to resolve to https.

I’ve tried the solutions posted above with no luck.
