XF 1.5 How does Xenforo community force non-www

    Hello All,

    I have recently purchased an SSL and installed it on my server. The conversion from http to https is done using the CloudFlare service, which is working perfectly fine. I did not have to worry about the redirection from http to https.

    I have tried many .htaccess files posted in this community to force www but none of them worked appropriately. However, I have noticed that xenforo.com forces non-www all the time very well.

    I would appreciate it if you can share the same .htaccess file so I can modify it to force www.

    Thank you.

    Place this in your .htaccess
    Code:
    #Force www:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]
    Of course, replacing www. yourdomain .com with your actual URL.

    I have already tried this but did not work. I think it works only if you entered http://domain.com/blabla, not httpS://domain.com/blabla.

    [edit]
    I solved the problem by using CloudFlare Page Rules service.
    Now it always will redirect to www.

    :)

    Glad to hear you got it sorted. I was going to suggest the following for you HTTPS redirect in place of what you might already be using. But if you got it working...if it ain't broke..

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R,L]
