How to Enable SSL (https) in Drupal 7

There are many ways how to do that, but easier and universal I use is this one.

Open .htaccess file

Locate your .htaccess file in Drupal 7 root directory. By default the file is hidden so make sure hidden files are set to be visible in your FTP client.

Add Rules at the end of the file

This part is easy, to redirect your Drupal 7 installation to non-WWW SSL enabled website, use the snipplet below.

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.+)
RewriteCond %{HTTPS}s/%1 ^(on(s)|offs)/(.+)
RewriteRule ^ http%2://%3%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} =http
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

This code is universal and you do not need to change anything in it.

UPDATE: Sometimes the code above does not work, then you can use this one:

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond "%{HTTP_HOST}" "^www\." [OR]
RewriteCond "%{HTTP_HOST}" "^YOURWEBSITE.eu" [NC]
RewriteCond "%{SERVER_PORT}" "^80$"
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.YOURWEBSITE\.eu$   [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://YOURWEBSITE.eu  [L,R]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%1/$1 [R=301,L]

There you have to change YOURWEBSITE to your domain. This code never failed me.

Done!

Easy as that. You do not need to change anything in Drupal database. Drupal is clever enough to make things work out of the box.
