HTTPS to HTTP with no cert installed

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by dansa, Mar 29, 2014.

  1. Hi all

    I recently changed my domain name and configured an IIS rewrite to redirect old http domain calls to the new one. All works grand.. but I had a SSL certificate on the old domain and haven't purchased a new certificate for new domain yet. I was trying to rewrite HTTPS:// to HTTP://

    It's not working and is it because I need to have a new certificate for new domain installed in order for the request to get through to IIS and my redirect to kick in?

    thanks for any help!
  2. Can you provide us with the two domains so we can visit them ourselves and see the problem? What is the error that you are seeing?

    Just remove the redirect code that redirects from HTTP to HTTPs. By default the web server should use HTTP. It won't if you have the redirect code so just remove it and you should be fine.
