Http to https: anything I’m missing?

Hostgator already has the certificate in place so they said to just throw this into the .htaccess and to change some setting in google webmaster tools. Are there any additional redirects I need to consider for functionality and for google juice? Or anything else I need to consider before I add that bit of code? Thanks

Force HTTPS Access

# Always use https for secure connections
# Replace '' with your domain name
# (as it appears on your SSL certificate)
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

We just did this in a thread for me, too.

Here’s what mine looks like:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule .?{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Does this help?

No unfortunately not. I have the htaccess bit my question was pertaining to anything else I need to consider?

Routing 404 etc pages instead of showing a bland default message.

I already have that. Just making sure I don’t need to redirect anything in order NOT to loose any google juice.

Nope, the two steps you’ve described should cover it.

Ok cool thank you
