Redirecting https to http when loading site

Last Modified: 2015-03-23
We would like the FQDN https://www.workforcesoftware.com forwarded to http://www.workforcesoftware.com as we don't currently have an HTTPS based offering of the wordpress site.

We have tried a few things in .htaccess but to no avail. Here is the current .htaccess:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

Options All -indexes

<FilesMatch "\.(ico|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">

ExpiresDefault "access plus 30 days"
Header unset ETag
FileETag None

<FilesMatch "\.(?i:pdf)$">
ForceType application/octet-stream
Header set Content-Disposition attachment

As of right now, it prompts for a security error and then shows the default cPanel error page:
