htaccess redirect fromt https to http

Hi,

I want to create a 301 redirect with htaccess from https://www.mhmultilingualservices.com to http://mhmultilingualservices.com or I may wish to redirect it to https://secure.mhmultilingualservices.com.

How can I do this in .htaccess?

Thanks,
Victor

Try this

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.mhmultilingualservices.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mhmultilingualservices.com/$1 [L,R=301]

or

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.mhmultilingualservices.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://secure.mhmultilingualservices.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Hi dsmile,

I just had a chance to test the https redirect. Unfortunately, it's not working.

https://www.mhmultilingualservices.com

I tried the following:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} www.mhmultilingualservices.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mhmultilingualservices.com/$1 [L,R=301]

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} www.mhmultilingualservices.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mhmultilingualservices.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Any other suggestions?

Just test your domain.

I enter https://www.mhmultilingualservices.com/
and end up at http://mhmultilingualservices.com/

Don't know what you're using, but it works :)

BTW

This code you posted is a wrong one

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} www.mhmultilingualservices.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://mhmultilingualservices.com/$1 [L,R=301]

This what I get when I go to the https page:

I'm using firefox 3.6, ie 8, and the latest Chrome. I don't think that should matter since it's at the server level with the htaccess script.

Just click "I Understand...", add your domain to trusted site, then you'll see the htaccess works (you'll be redirected to http://mhmultilingualservices.com/)

That's what I'm trying to avoid. The client is stating that her clients are complaining about that security issue pop-up notification. Is there a workaround to this?

There's no work-around, I'm afraid.
The cause of this is not htaccess, but SSL itself.
The only way to get rid of this popup notification for good (if not using my earlier suggestion) is to buy an SSL certificate, not using a self-signed one.
Check it here http://www.verisign.com/ssl/

I'll have to try with a php redirect and see if that works later.
