Redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS

2017-01-09

Recently I’ve moved all my websites to HTTPS thanks to Let’s Encrypt and Siteground.

To redirect the traffic from HTTP to HTTPS I’ve used this rule in my .htaccess file:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
# First rewrite to HTTPS:
# Don't put www. here. If it is already there it will be included, if not
# the subsequent rule will catch it.
RewriteRule .* https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
