Hello I have a site that I need to run the entire site on https protocol.   I am not sure what I need to do in my htaccess file to make that happen.  I already have my SSL.


RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^prizemagnet\.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.prizemagnet\.com$

RewriteRule ^index\.php$ "http\:\/\/www\.prizemagnet\.com\/" [R=301,L,QSA,NC]

Step one: Contact your hosting company and tell them what you want to do.

You can use PHP to make an HTTPS-only script with something like this.
<?php // RAY_https.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
 
// ONLY RUN THIS SCRIPT UNDER HTTPS

// WE ARE NOT UNDER HTTPS
if (!isset($_SERVER["HTTPS"]))
{
    $secure_url = 'https://' . $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"] . $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];
    header("Location: $secure_url");
    exit;
}

// THE REST OF THE SCRIPT IS HERE.
phpinfo();

Your code appears to only redirect for 'index.php'.  This code is supposed to redirect all requests to 'HTTPS'.
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://domain.com/$1 [R,L]

I have contacted my hosting company and they gave me a code exactly like Dave's.  I have one more question on this please.  Do I need to 2 rewrite conditions I previously had and how should I be redirecting my index.php.


This is the code they said use just like Dave.
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

That statement redirects ALL requests from HTTP to HTTPS.  You don't need a special case for 'index.php'.  You do want to make sure that the domain you use after 'https' is exactly the domain in your certificate.  If your cert has 'www', then you must use https://www.example.com/$1 .  If it has only your domain, then you must use https://example.com/$1 .
