XF 1.4 Redirecting www to non-www

    I'm trying to redirect www URLs to non-www. I tried every version from the FAQ, but didn't work.

    My forum is in a subdirectory. I'm using this rule:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.example.com/forum$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.com/forum$1 [R=301,L]

    Should it work or I'm doing something wrong?

    The HTTP_HOST line can't have the directory -- it's just www.example.com that should be listed.

    I've changed it but now I'm getting 404 pages. Obviously I'm doing something wrong so here is my entire .htaccess file:

    # Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
    # cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
    #<IfModule mod_security.c>
    # SecFilterEngine Off
    # SecFilterScanPOST Off

    ErrorDocument 401 default
    ErrorDocument 403 default
    ErrorDocument 404 default
    ErrorDocument 405 default
    ErrorDocument 406 default
    ErrorDocument 500 default
    ErrorDocument 501 default
    ErrorDocument 503 default

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    # If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
    # line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
    # of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
    RewriteBase /forum
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.mysite.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mysite.com/forum$1 [R=301,L]

    # This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
    #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

    Just in case anyone else needs this. This is what worked for me:

    RewriteBase /forum
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.+)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^ http://%1%{REQUEST_URI} [NE,R=301,L]

    @dtommy79 thanks for this, how would I go about changing non-www to www?
