redirect to https

Post by mrwillow » Fri Aug 30, 2019 11:21 am

Hi,

I have my site built with WB14 - www.theavenuemotionpicturecompany.com - and have now purchased through my server an SSL certificate. It is configured correctly at their end, but to redirect from http to https somehow I need some kind of plug-in/instruction on what to do. I really do not know anything about this, and therefore, from the top, am asking you.

Please advise,

DC

You will need to configure this on the server in .htaccess

To do a redirect will require the use of a 301 .htaccess file. Which you or your host can configure on the server. It will also require that the server runs Apache for it to work.

Code: Select all

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yoursite\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yoursite.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Here's another .htaccess file which's working for some servers

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]
You will need to replace example.com with your domain name.

Hi all,

And thank you, though this is over my head as currently presented. May I ask for a step-by-step guide?

D.

You can create an htaccess file by opening a .txt file in Notepad, copy and paste BF's code into it then click File >> Save as. In the pop-up dialogue, make sure to type .htaccess as the file name, choose 'ALL FILES' in the 'Save as type' box, finally click Save button.
In your project open File publisher and add the file then when you publish the htaccess will be in the root of your website
At last, website finished - - - - but wait !!!!

Nope, sorry, not quite getting it. I've created a text file, c&p the code, closed the file, and manually renamed it ".htaccess" (and therefore it reads ".htaccess.txt"). Your next set of instructions are not clear to me. Am I supposed to add the code directly somewhere (in which case why would I need a txt file)? Or am I to attach the txt file somewhere - and if so, where?

Don't close and rename it, it will just be a text file. Follow the instructions step by step.

Can I contact you from your website, if so I will create an htaccess file for you and email it.

Ok, get the first bit and have now done correctly. The second set of instructions don't make sense. I open WB14, then open the Publisher - ??? Do you mean open WB14, then the project file, then publish? But even then what to do exactly with the .htaccess file?

Ok, there is a File Publisher Plus in the list, and I have now installed this. Do I then: i) from this Toolbox add this to just one, or every single, page within my Project? ii) open it and "Add Files", and locate the .htaccess file? iii) then publish the one page or entire website?

Drag "File Publisher" from Toolbox >>Miscellaneous not File Publisher Plus from "WYSIWYG web builder extensions" to your index page only, add .htaccess this will add it to the root of your website.

Can you log on to your cPanel on your server?
Since it's a one-off exercise you can just upload the .htaccess file (without the .txt) to the public_html folder (or whichever yours is) and that's it.
If it's not too late I would first check whether there is already an .htaccess file there, sometimes the host puts one there first.
If so you will have to append the new code to the existing one.

Ok, this has totally screwed up.

I followed the correct instructions, but forgot to adapt "yoursite.com". So now when loading my site yoursite.com shows up. So I redid after adapting the code to the below, republished, but yoursite.com still shows up. Just calling my server, 123-reg, and they say that their systems are indicating a content change - which is correct - but I have no idea how to update appropriately. You would think it's a simple re-publish, but it isn't. Here's the adapted code,

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.theavenuemotionpicturecompany\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.theavenuemotionpicturecompany.com/$1 [L,R=301]

In my control panel there is both a File folder and a public_html folder, the latter within the former. Placing the .htaccess file in either one makes no difference to the current situation.

Help.
