HTTPS Redirect with Apache

You will need to create or modify the .htaccess file. If you currently do not have one, you can create one using your control panel’s file manager.

Add the following code to your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !=443
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^${REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

You will need to replace with your domain. If you are using http:// without www. in your platform, then remove www. from the code.

If you already have code in your .htaccess file, it is important that you place the above code at the beginning otherwise you will cause unnecessary loops which will cause 404 errors.
