Force https://www. for Codeigniter in htaccess with mod_rewrite

I'm using Codeigniter and following these instructions to force ssl but all requests are being redirected to

http://staging.example.com/index.php/https:/staging.example.com


My
.htaccess
is:

### Canonicalize codeigniter URLs

# Enforce SSL https://www.
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

###
# Removes access to the system folder by users.
# Additionally this will allow you to create a System.php controller,
# previously this would not have been possible.
# 'system' can be replaced if you have renamed your system folder.
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^system.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

# Checks to see if the user is attempting to access a valid file,
# such as an image or css document, if this isn't true it sends the
# request to index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

Answer

I think, instead of

RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

you should have something like

RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

do have the rewrite rule match. Your link is currently produced by the third rule.
