XF 1.5 SSL Headaches

Trying to get my SSL to work is proving to be an adventure. The certificate is already installed on the server and everything is good. For kicks, I enabled HTTPS in the config.php file and changed the URLs in the ACP to reflect the new protocol instead of HTTP. It's when I tried to add the .htaccess redirect that everything falls apart. When I add the following redirect, my page wont load and I get an error saying it's being redirected in a way that the page will never load.

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
I have tried to start a new .htaccess and add the following code, but still no no avail. I am running an Apache server if that helps.

I don't know what I am doing wrong...

I got it working.

I don't think I changed anything in config.php


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
That and turn on proxy images and links

(BTW nice username)
