    .htaccess to redirect non-www to www, http to https, then do http authentication

    Hello all,

    I am trying to write a .htaccess file that does the following:

    - redirects example.com to www.example.com
    - redirects http to https
    - I'd like it to do both corrections above in one redirect, not two
    - I'd like it to do all those corrections first, then do http/401 authentication popup

    I'm not sure if the last item is possible (redirecting before authentication). However I know the other 3 are, just my code isn't working well yet. Here is what I have so far.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301]
    AuthType Basic
    AuthUserFile /home/exampleuser/example.com/.htpasswd
    AuthName "Secure Area"
    require valid-user
    Thanks in advance for your help.
