SSL Redirect Not Working

Post by Pcabezas » Sun Sep 15, 2019 4:18 pm

Hello Everyone,

I have followed instructions to have a website redirect "incorrect http" urls to a correct https url. I am using CPanel.

1. Inserted instructions in .httaccess file.

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

2. Since I am using Joomla, I set entire site to use https.

3. Missing a step?

My website is still not redirecting.

Link: https://www.recondelectronics.com


If I put for example: http://www.recondelectronics.com

it will not redirect. What step am I missing.

Thank you

Philip C

You don't have to change anything in the .htaccess file (use the default Joomla supplied one).

Set Force Entire Site in Global Configuration.

PS. I do get https with the http link.

Hi,
Looks like the basic solution works!
Force entire website to HTTPS under the Joomla Settings option.

Thanks
Philip C.
