[Help] htaccess issues with HTTPS

    Hello guys,

    Can someone give me a little help with my htaccess file?
    I installed SSL in my site and now I'm having some problems adding a code to redirect from http:// to https://

    I think the code is fine:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
    Code (markup):
    The problem is that I'm using W3 Total Cache plugin and I think is causing conflict.
    I need someone to give a look to my .htaccess file.
    # BEGIN W3TC Page Cache core
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteBase /
        RewriteCond %{HTTPS} =on
        RewriteRule .* - [E=W3TC_SSL:_ssl]
        RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} =443

        RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} w3tc_preview [NC]

    Trophy Points:
    If it's WordPress, then you can set the 'siteurl' and 'home' rows to https:// in your WordPress database, via phpMyAdmin. It should then redirect by default to https, and change the base prefix, so assets not hardcoded should load over HTTPS.

    The RewriteRule looks fine, but test the aforementioned fix without it first, and add it back if needed. Anything else that displays mixed content errors after that is hardcoded.
