Https redirection

Hi ,
I'm still having problems with the HTaccess redirection
the address is this should redirect to the
But it's not.
Here is the current htaccess file ..

htaccess file version 1.4.12;

Rewrite rules are now handled by PHP code

See the file "zenphoto-rewrite.txt" for the actual rules


These rules redirect everything not directly accessing a file to the Zenphoto index.php script


IndexIgnore *

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[0-9]+..+.cpaneldcv$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/.well-known/pki-validation/[A-F0-9]{32}.txt(?:\ Comodo\ DCV)?$
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(/$|.)
RewriteRule (.*) %{REQUEST_URI}/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [L]

RewriteRule ^.*/?$ index.php [L,QSA]

Can anyone help please? suggest a solution ?

Thank you

    You should do the redirection via your host/server. You often can configure a "force ssl" or similar on your host's settings when you enable https.

    I've always seen it as:

    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301,NE]

    So, might try %{HTTPS} off instead of %{HTTPS} !on

  • Tried that didn't work

    I have to admit I never tried it since the hosts I know do this via server side setting. But besides that I only know what @MarkRH posted.

    There is also the syntax %{HTTPS} !=on according to the Apache wiki:

    I am not sure what these lines are actually for?:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/[0-9]+..+.cpaneldcv$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/.well-known/pki-validation/[A-F0-9]{32}.txt(?:\ Comodo\ DCV)?$

    Maybe try to strip down to the really ZP necessary stuff and try with that.

  • Those extra lines are from cPanel's AutoSSL process. It adds them before every single RewriteRule just about.

    @MarkRH: Thanks, I am not familar with cPanel at all.
