hi
i have a rule in place that redirects all traffic from http to https and it kinda works when i hit my site mysite.com/mysite/ it redirects to https://mysite.com/mysite/ but it doesn't display the site but it displays this message "forbidden" " you don't have access to access /mysite/ on this server

this is the rule

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

am i supposed to change any permissions anywhere?

thanks for any help

Change the above .htaccess code to below one:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [NC,R=301,L] 

Open in new window


If it's still not working, let me know.

Thanks
Edwin
