Focing HTTP only


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: Edited .htaccess to containt the following:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule ^ http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

It produced this output:Too many redirects error

My web server is (include version): Apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: OVH VPS

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No

I am trying to force HTTP only due to some scripts and fonts not being secure and causing issues for my site. Once I have corrected the issue I will force HTTPS once again.

I secured my site with let’s encrypt and removed the forllowing from my site enabled file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME}
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]



I don’t actually understand why…

However, you could try to change your site url & admin url (on Wordpress Backend, Settings > general) from HTTP to HTTPS?

Also, if you are using a drag-drop builder, you might need to change some url (manually) from http to https.

Thank you
