How to force SSL with .htaccess

 

You can force an HTTPS connection on your website by adding these rules in your website's .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
 
The .htaccess file needs to be located inside the site's document root folder. If your website is in a subfolder, then the .htaccess should be placed in the corresponding subfolder.

You can create or edit the .htaccess file either via FTP, or using the File Manager available in cPanel.
