HTACCESS www. redirect for MODX manager not working

Working with Modx 2.8.3, I added these instructions to the .htaccess file to have all page requests be redirected to “www.”

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

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443
RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

It works flawlessly for the website itself (e.g. but not for modx manager, e.g.

The problem is, when calling the manager without preceding “www.”, it does not work properly. I then have to manually add “www.” to the domain and then have to login once more. Why does the www. redirect not work for /manager?

There is an additional .htaccess file in the “manager” folder. This .htaccess file takes precedence for requests to this folder.

You probably have to make changes there as well.
