    You can do this through your WP options – you don’t need to touch .htaccess.

    Here’s how:

    1. Remove the code you’ve added to .htaccess.

    2. Make sure the htaccess file is writable (permissions: 777).

    3. Log in to WP and navigate to Settings > General. Where it says “wp location” and “wp url” (or similar), add the www.

    4. It’ll log you out. Log back in and test it.

    If you can’t log in, try this tutorial:
