This question already has an answer here:

The SSL certificate on my site has expired, which has caused https requests to the site to fail.

While I am sorting out a new SSL certificate, what can I do to redirect https requests into the http requests?

The https folder of my site is sym-linked to the http folder.

If you have Apache and mod_rewrite, then put this script in a .htaccess file that needs to be in your root folder

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}

I am using a commercial web-host. How can I tell if mod_rewrite is on? –  CJ7 Mar 22 '13 at 12:38
    
Use this code in a php script in_array('mod_rewrite', apache_get_modules()); –  Prasad Mar 22 '13 at 12:54
    
Commenting the redirect/rewrite code will serve your purpose. –  Nilabh Mar 23 '13 at 7:35

You would have added http to http redirect in your .htaccess file or your .conf file.

Open the file where the redirect has been added and comment the redirect/rewrite code.

Your website will start to resolve using http:// protocol.
