hi,

I am using cPanel 84.08 VPS cloud - CentOS 7.7 MariaDB 10.3

I am having an issue with subdomain redirects

so I have a domain called: example.com
I have this set to https:// and to redirect to www.example.com working great...

I then create a sub domain: work.example.com

i then turn on https:// then go to redirects and try to redirect the subdomain without www. but it throws error, because it is the same path / Folder
so then I go back to redirect and select : example.com
then I add the folder /work
then I add http://work.example.com
then I select: Only redirect with www.

it allows this redirect..

I then go to http://example.com/work but it doesn't redirect
so i select: redirect with or without www

and that seems to work but, the only issue is that I can type http://www,work.example.com and it doesn't redirect to https://work.example.com

So not sure... how I can achieve both of these redirects ?

I want anyone who types in http://www.work.example.com to redirect to https://work.example.com
also if someone types in http://example.com/work or http://www.example.com/work or https://www.example.com/work

to redirect to https://work.example.com



is this redirect I am mentioning even possible? to redirect the folder and the www to non www in work.example.com subdomain via cPanel redirect?

hope i didn't confuse anyone I am trying to write as much as possible so you can understand what I am trying to accomplish

thanks in advance for anyone who can help using redirect via cPanel or I can just use htaccess with some code to make this work correctly

Hello @Spirogg

I'm not able to replicate this.
  • I have a subdomain called 123.mydomain.us
  • Its document root is in /home/myuser/public_html/123
  • the root domain mydomain.us is forced to redirect to https
  • When I add a redirect through cPanel the following is added to the .htaccess for the subdomain:
    Code:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^123\.mydomain\.us$ [OR]RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.123\.mydomain\.us$
    RewriteRule ^/?$ "https\:\/\/mydomain\.us\/" [R=301,L]
  • I tested by entering in the following:
  • All of them redirected successfully to mydomain.us -&nbspDomain Names Resources and Information.
Are you sure you're not encountering caching?

Hi @cPanelLauren

I did clear cache. And still have this issue. So my setup is different.

So maybe I can explain a little more.
I have setup work.domain.us have enabled to force https://

But I want to make sure that whom ever goes to www.work.domain.us or www.domain.us/work or domain.us/work will be redirected to

Not domain.us

Thanks for your help

Hello,

In my instance I forced https on the destination domain only - since anything else is being redirected to it. I realize it didn't show very visibly on the link.


What's the redirect look like in the .htaccess file?

First I have forced https for both domain.com and work.domain.com

Then I redirected domain.com to www.domain.com

Then I redirected domain.com/work
To http://work.domain.com

Here is the code below.


Code:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com$
RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/www\.domain\.com\/" [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.domain\.com$
RewriteRule ^work\/?$ "http\:\/\/work\.domain\.com\/" [R=301,L]

I think this is working now
except if someone enters http://www.work.domain.com it won't redirect to http://work.domain.com

Which I don't think anyone will type www.work.domain.com

unless you know of a way to redirect the www in the subdomain also ?

The reason I ask, is that the script I will be using for work.domain.com will only work properly from http or https work.domain.com it will not work properly if someone enters http https www.work.domain.com from a css and login stand point. Has to be one or the other either www.work.domain.com Or just work.domain.com

Thanks for all your help
Regards,
Spiro

Hi @Spirogg

But the end goal is for them to end up at https://work.domain.com right? If you remove forced redirection to https from everything but work.domain.com and then set up the .htaccess redirect rule the way I have it, it should function to move everything to https://work.domain.com with or without https and with or without www


Code:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^123\.mydomain\.us$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.123\.mydomain\.us$
RewriteRule ^/?$ "https\:\/\/mydomain\.us\/" [R=301,L]
