Apache HTTP to HTTPS htaccess redirect on CWP – Centos WebPanel

by Sandy

In this tutorial we’ll perform redirect of  HTTP to HTTPS (mod_rewrite – Apache) htaccess rule on CWP, I’m assuming you’ve already installed ssl certs and enabled https support for your website if you not done it yet then stop here this can break websites if ssl is not already installed.

SSL is very important nowadays for better security and SEO benefits, if you didn’t installed ssl for your sites yet consider upgrading to https, this will build trust towards your visitors and google gives better ranking in search engine (I’m not a SEO expert but noticed this changes).

How to Enable HTTP/2 on CWP7 – Centos Web Panel

Lets get started :

Using Apache as main server (only) :

Rewrite rule as follows, this need to be added in your sites .htaccess :

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Forcing non www to www and https :

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

replace your domain eg :

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

Forcing www to non www and https :

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule .* https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
RewriteRule .* https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

this also add Permanent 301 Redirect.

If upper rules doesn’t works for your Websites And Getting “Too Many redirects” then you should consider below htaccess rule.

Using Apache as backend server behind NGINX/VARNISH server :

This need to be added in your sites .htaccess :

Rewrite rule as follows, this need to be added in your sites .htaccess :

SetEnvIf X-Forwarded-Proto "https" HTTPS=on
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

OR

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [NE,L,R=301]

OR

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} =https
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

To force all traffic to use both the www domain and SSL HTTPS, use the following rules:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Dear,
I am Using Apache as backend server behind NGINX/VARNISH server in CWP.
I use this method:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://admin.example.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L,NE]

but it does not work. The url forced to https://admin.example.com but the it shows error content.
In firefox with private window with clear cache and cookie:
The page isn’t redirecting properly
An error occurred during a connection to admin.example.com.
This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Any one help me, please.

Thanks,
