Force WWW and ignore subdomain

Posted one year ago

Following on from the post where I explain how to force WWW, I’ve found with development domains ( the htaccess is breaking the site, in the interest of keeping staging and production like for like I’ve added the following lines to my htaccess.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^dev\.domain\.com$ [NC]

So my Htaccess looks like the following, I have my conditions and then the rule.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^dev\.domain\.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTPS}s ^on(s)|
RewriteRule ^ http%1://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
