Not Solved [General] mybb .htaccess file query
#1
Not Solved
So, my hosting provider says that in order to add a redirect I should add the code in .htaccess file of mine. I want to create a redirect by which a sub-domain will be redirected to the main domain.

Now as I have mybb installed in the root directory, it already has a .htaccess file and plenty of codes in it (I don't understand code).

I pasting here the code which is present in the file.
Options -MultiViews +FollowSymlinks -Indexes

#
# If mod_security is enabled, attempt to disable it.
# - Note, this will work on the majority of hosts but on
#   MediaTemple, it is known to cause random Internal Server
#   errors. For MediaTemple, please remove the block below
#
<IfModule mod_security.c>
# Turn off mod_security filtering.
SecFilterEngine Off

# The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry.
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>

# MyBB "search engine friendly" URL rewrites
# - Note, for these to work with MyBB please make sure you have
#   the setting enabled in the Admin CP and you have this file
#   named .htaccess

Can anybody suggest me here what code should I add in it to successfully create a 301 redirect in which my sub-domain will be redirected to the main domain?

well you haven't given which sub domain you want to redirect to which of your domain. but let's start like this. I.e. if your sub domain is blog.example.com and you want to redirect all to its main domain I.e https://www.example.com so the code to do that will be:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^blog\.example\.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) https://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Okay got it thanks.
 And also can you provide the code for transferring from http to https?

Use this to redirect http to https
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

There is a complete guide for this

So, all I have to do is add this code after the </Files> command?

No, make that at the very beginning (the top) of the .htaccess code.

Like you see in the screenshot.
