How to redirect domain from to ?

If you tried all the possibilities with the .htaccess file and your domain is still not redirected from https to http then finally you can add following code in virtual host entry means in httpd.conf file.

Search the 443 entry for a domain and add the code. If the 443 entry are not present then create/add it and then add the following code.


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^443$
RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [L,R]


For example:


VirtualHost *:443>
DocumentRoot /var/www/
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/domain.com_error_log
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/domain.com_access_log combined
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^443$
RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [L,R]

<Directory “/var/www/”>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Deny from env=keep_out # see file



Restart the apache and Done
