force https on all http pages in .htaccess file

I have the following code in my wordpress .htaccess file:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /dev/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /dev/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

However, I need to force all of these pages to be over https.  What lines do I add?  So if a user does navigate to any page on my site over port 80, it should automatically serve up that same page but over 443.

Any ideas experts?

In case you wish to force HTTPS for a particular folder you can use:

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} somefolder RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.domain.com/somefolder/$1 [R,L]

Okay, I tried the following:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

However, if type in www.domain.com, it does not redirect to https://www.domain.com

I also tried this:

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

And the page just hangs in the browser.

So, I don't want the user to redirect to any folder or page.  if the user types into the browser to www.domain.com/page-1 or http://www.domain.com/page-1, I want to redirect them to https://www.domain.com/page-1

So whichever page they are on, it converts to https.  Any ideas?

You may be able to do this in PHP, as well.
<?php // RAY_https_only.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// DEMONSTRATE HOW TO RESTRICT A SCRIPT SO THAT IT ONLY RUNS BEHIND HTTPS

// IF NOT HTTPS
if (empty($_SERVER["HTTPS"]))
{
    // CONSTRUCT THE HTTPS URL WE WANT, PRESERVING GET VARS
    $my_uri
    = 'https://'
    . $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]
    . $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]
    ;

    // BAIL OUT WITH 301 AND LOCATION
    header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: $my_uri");
    exit;
}

// ELSE WE ARE ALREADY IN HTTPS - START SESSION FOR HTTPS ONLY IN ALL SUBDIRECTORIES AND ALL SUBDOMAINS
$x = explode('.', strtolower($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]));
$y = count($x);
if ($y == 1) // MAYBE 'localhost'?
{
    $cookie_domain = $x[0];
}
else // SOMETHING LIKE 'www2.atf70.whitehouse.gov'?
{
    // USE THE LAST TWO POSITIONS TO MAKE THE HOST DOMAIN
    $cookie_domain = '.' . $x[$y-2] . '.' . $x[$y-1];
}

$sess_name = session_name();
if (session_start())
{
    // MAN PAGE: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.setcookie.php
    setcookie($sess_name, session_id(), NULL, '/', $cookie_domain, TRUE, TRUE);
}

okay, and where would that php page go?

I didn't restart apache.  Do I need to  after making a change to the htaccess file?  So my file is like this:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /dev/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /dev/index.php [L]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !443
RewriteRule (.*) https://www.domain.com/dev/ [R]
</IfModule>

Is that correct?

Okay, I got it to work.  I placed the following in my functions.php page:

//force redirect to secure page
if($_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] != '443') { header('Location: https://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']); exit(); }

That forced every page to https.
