Add or Force SSL Certificates

After adding an SSL certificate to force traffic to use HTTPS, add this code to the .htaccess file. 

Important: Add this above any current rule.

 To force www only

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

 To force www and naked domain

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

 To force folder only

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} folder 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourwebsite.com/directory/$1 [R,L]

Be sure you change the directory reference to the folder name.


Be sure to replace www.yourwebsite.com with your domain name.
