Hi there,

I’m using the Multisite and wildcard, and I setup the SSL on my domain. I’m also set up .htaccess to let website can force SSL.

If I enter the http://domain.com, it will auto redirect to https://domain.com, but If I enter the http://subdomain.domain.com, it will auto redirect to https://domain.com.

How can I fixed it, let it can do that when I enter the http://subdomain.domain.com, then it will auto redirect to https://subdomain.domain.com??

My site: seobook.xyz, Test subdomain: seo.seobook.xyz

My .htaccess:


<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]



RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin

RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

RewriteRule ^ – [L]

RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]

RewriteRule ^(.*.php)$ $1 [L]

RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Hello leoventans,

    The correct rewrite rule to use in this situation is the following:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}/%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    This *should* redirect all requested domains pointed to that directory on your server to the https schema. If you have added the above to your .htaccess and it is still not working correctly, you may have a conflict in your .htaccess hierarchy.

    Could you please check to ensure there are no .htaccess files higher in the filesystem hierarchy that are performing any rewrites?

    Also, in order to help you better with your issue, would you please grant me access to your site?

    Hello leoventans,

    When I checked your seo subsite in Network Admin -> Sites -> Edit Site, I saw that your had the siteurl and home url set to the http protocol. This was causing the redirect issue you were experiencing. After changing these urls to the https protocol, the redirect is working properly now.

    Let us know if you have any further questions. We’ll be happy to help! :slight_smile:
