Forcing Apache to use HTTPS

I have tried several attempts at forcing my RHEL 5 web server running PHP 5.3 and Apache 2.2.3 to always use HTTPS instead of HTTP.   I want wherever anyone goes or whatever anyone types into the address bar of the web browser to automatically use https://

I have tried the following without success:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on

RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [NC,R,L]

RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L]

RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Need help!
