About .htaccess file

Post by alexwood » Tue Oct 02, 2018 4:06 pm

Hey! Help me! Please!

On my site I use phpBB as a support forum. I would like to redirect all traffic to always use https, instead of http. Generally on my site this works fine, but as phpBB comes with its own .htaccess file, I guess that it needs some tweaks.

What I did was I added the code below at the bottom of the phpBB .htaccess file, and it seems to do its job just fine, but I was wondering if any problems might occur that I haven't thought of, using that solution.
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

mine looks like this:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
if yours works with "off' as opposed to " !=on" then I guess that is fine.

I am available for custom work on a donation basis. Please send me a PM with your needs.
