    Hi all,

    Hoping you can all help. I have recently switched one of our sites over to full SSL access (it's a transactional website so made sense). However I also had a development subdomain setup ( which we used without problem before the switch.

    Unfortunately now whenever I visit it redirects straight away to throwing an SSL error.

    Is there any way that I can have a subdomain of the main domain running without the SSL kicking in?

    The primary site is running on Wordpress if that's any help.

    Hello :)

    Check to see if you have Mod_Rewrite rules in your .htaccess file that are redirecting the non-https requests to https. You may need to remove or modify those rules so they don't automatically redirect non-secure requests to the https URL.

    Thank you.
