I recently moved my site from
http://www.example.com to https://www.example.com
Now, due to an issue with the SSL certificate authority I have had to pull it down and reverse it back to
Now that this is completed I have an issue. Google has indexed the HTTPS version, and is showing this in the search results - because I have had to uninstall the certificate, I can't do a manual 302 redirect (not 301!) via .htaccess because it won't ever be loaded.
So my question is this - does anyone have any other knowledge about how to recover from this and/or complete a redirect which doesn't rely on the server?
A few points to note:
Using Apache with CPanel
The non HTTPS version is already registered in Web Master tools
Preferably not a 301 redirect because I do plan to go back to HTTPS once the issue is resolved
