This question already has an answer here:

I'm confused about how to force my url to use www in the address.

I have a .htaccess code like this:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

I'm changing

RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


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

but I still get an error.

The page isn't redirecting properly when I open http://www.mysite.com/category

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Your .htaccess looks like you are using Wordpress. Is this true? If that is the case, just go to Settings -> General and change WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to versions with 'www'.
