joomla htaccess 2 steps redirect

I recently changed the site to HTTPS, and before the site was using both non-www and www url version..

Now I changed the site to HTTPS and forced redirect from non-www to www...

everything works fine for the old http+www urls for example:

old url

new url

in this case the old url will fully redirect to the new one, no problem

but as soon as the old url is NON-WWW it redirects to HTTPS but to the index.php page not the full path.. for example

old url OR

the redirected url for this will be INSTEAD OF ****

Here is my htaccess I wrote, I can't think of anything else more.. can somebody please help. Thanks

To redirect http to https://www, you can use

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} OFF [NC]
RewriteCond www.%{HTTP_HOST} ^(?:www\.)?(www\..+)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^ http://%1%{REQUEST_URI} [NE,L,R]
