<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} != on
RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=permanent]
I am trying to do a mod rewrite but it's not working, it's giving me a 500 server error, it should redirrect to https when someone tries to visit the site, am I doing something wrong.

You could probably click on any one of those links and get an easier answer.  I'm not sure if mod_rewrite will do a redirect anyway...I think it will just rename the url, making someone think they are at a secure site...which is not a good practice.

Yeah the mod rewrite on rewrites the URL. It doesnt look like hes trying to decieve his users, it looks likes heys checkjing that there on a https page, then if then redirect them.

You want a simple redirect.
