Rewrite HTTP to HTTPS

When I installed xenforo I set my board URL to https. However, I am still able to hit http links. Xenforo currently resides in /community. I followed this wiki but when I hit http://www.example.com/community it does not get redirected to https.

My board URL is https://www.example.com/community and below is the contents of my .htaccess in /community. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?community/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/community/$1 [R,L]
#    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

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    #    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 /xenforo

    #    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]
Is this the correct way to force www and https? xenForo resides in /community.

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/community/$1 [R=301,L]
