    Title says it all.

    Tried doing it through htaccess but it's not working. Yes mod_rewrite is enabled

    #   Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    #   cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.

    You need to move the rewrite rules you added to directly after this line:
    RewriteEngine On

    Make sure you also update your Board URL to HTTPS too in Admin CP > Home > Options > Basic Board Information.

    The URL is detected based on the parameters provided from the server. How have you setup HTTPS? Are you using CloudFlare's flexible SSL?

    Everything seems fixed after i set "https" in the Board URL settings. I'm not using CloudFlare, i'm using my own SSL certificate bought from PositiveSSL
