Question

redirect http & https//www to https:(non-www)

I’m looking for a way to redirect my website in the following order:

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

i was using following code in .htaccess

RewriteEngine on

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

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

but after using this code my other websites which was not using ssl started redirecting to https: as i am on shared server.

can some one provide me code for .htaccess which can redirect only 1 website and not interfere with other non ssl websites ?

thanks in advance.

This should do the trick:

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R,L]

This will redirect any URL not using the www subdomain and any URL that is not https:// to the https://www version of your site.

Apache does not have mod_rewrite enabled by default so for this to work you’ll need to do two things.

  1. Enable mod_rewrite
sudo a2enmod rewrite;
sudo service apache2 restart;
  1. In your /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ config file you will need to make sure that the <Directory> block for your web root has the option AllowOverride All set. This tells Apache it can use directives in an .htaccess file to override the default settings.

After changing the file, restart Apache:

sudo service apache2 restart;
