    Need htaccess force www and https help

    Hello!
    Is anyone here a master of the htaccess? I have a question pertaining to redirects.

    I am trying to find the correct way to force https and www versions of a url without causing a redirect chain.

    I usually end up using these rules,

    Code:
     ## REDIRECT NON WWW TO WWW ##
        RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain.com [NC]
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    
        ## REDIRECT INDEX TO ROOT ##
        RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/index.php 
        RewriteRule ^(.*)index.php$ https://site.com/$1 [R=301,L] 
    
        ## REDIRECTS TO HTTPS SECURE ##
        RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://site.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    But of course this creates a chain where if the user were to type in http://example.com it would go as so,

    http://example.com/index.php > http://www.example.com/index.php > http://www.example.com/ > https://www.example.com/

    Causing 3 redirects. Is there any way to correctly combine all of these so no matter how an end user types these in they will end up at https://www.example.com without the chain?

    Any info/input at all is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    .htaccess is a bit of a black art as the saying goes.

    I had a quickie for you, apparently these are the two you can find...
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L]
    which is a redirect.

    The next one is also a redirect but it also issues a flag to say its permanent
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
    another one suggests
    Code:
    Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !=443
    RewriteRule ^ https://[your domain name]%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
    where [your domain name] is the base of your site domain (url).

    and if you have full server access, you can do it in the Apache config files.
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
