I have referred all the related questions and tried answer given but its not working for my site.

In my .htaccess file, I have written below code to redirect non-www to www

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com$ [NC]

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L] 

Is there any settings in Joomla to be done, to work .htaccess file.

Thanks, in advance

Accepted Answer

This is what I use -

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC] 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301] 

The differences are minor but should make it work. This works completely outside the scope of Joomla, you shouldn't have to do anything to Joomla for this to work.
