    One of my domains on my VPS is suddenly redirecting to HTTPS.
    I didn't set this and can't force it back to HTTP.

    When I try to force HTTP in the .htaccess file the site won't load. :confused:

    I'm guessing this is kind of SNI component, but I haven't set anything up with SNI and know very little about this new feature. The IP is shared with 8 total domains.

    The Pre-Main and Post VirtualHost include files are empty.
    The "Pre" is populated a bit, but there is nothing regarding this domain specifically, and all other other domains are HTTP.

    This is a WordPress blog, and while I didn't specifically configure any SSL connection, I don't mind the SSL for the back end, but I don't want the SSL for the front end.

    Some links in Google index are now showing up as https. :(

    Any idea where to start to resolve this?

    Thanks!!

    ** SOLVED **
    Okay, so apparently somehow my 2 browsers cached the https and were forcing the redirect (FF & Chrome).
    My browsers always clear cookies on exit but not the history.

    :(

    The Google index puzzles me o_O but maybe the googlebot is now checking for an https connection first.
    I know they're pushing for SSL everywhere.
    About 70% of my links are indexed as https searching with "site:domain.com"

    I wish everyone the best.

    Hello,

    I'm happy to see the issue is now resolved. The following links are helpful if you'd like more information about AutoSSL:

    Manage AutoSSL - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you.
