Redirect loop when https

by user3774771   Last Updated September 12, 2018 15:10 PM

I added ssl-certificate on my Joomla web-site. My actions:

  1. Add certificate data to hosting
  2. In configuration check SSL for entire site
  3. In configuration.php rewrite live_site as

And it's all good, web-site work with https, but I need to redirect site from http to https when user enter. For this I add to .htaccess next rule

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^ https://%1%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

And after this I have an redirect loop error.

I tried different variants of rewrite rules in htaccess, but nothing help. Need an advice please.

Joomla 3.7.4 PHP 5.6.30 Server - Linux, Apache 2.0

You don't need to do anything else after Forcing HTTPS on the Entire Site through Joomla's Global Configuration.

The .htaccess redirection is redundant, as Joomla will treat the whole site's redirection to HTTPS.

***Update your Joomla to the latest version.
