First time using Microsoft Azure.
I'm using Azure App Service for WordPress for my site farminguru.in for which the A records points to the correct IP address mentioned at Networking in Azure.
DNS is at CloudFlare.
www has CNAME pointing to farminguru.azurewebsites.net

This is what's in the server's .htaccess

# HTTPS forced by SG-Optimizer
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

But my APEX domain returns 403. What do I have to do to modify my .htaccess to redirect my APEX to www ?

  • What you are asking (to redirect your domain "apex to www") is a standard non-www to www redirect that has been answered here many times before (here's another example). However, I wonder if there is something more to this? What (and why) is generating the 403 response? Is the request even reaching your server instance?

  • The A points to the correct IP but the Azure server seems to be running on nginx ? The user nginx is mentioned in ls of /var/www/wordpress but there exists and .htaccess as well.
