I use multisites with subfolders and domain mapping on a reasonably large multisite (100s of sites, half with their own domain).
I have bumped into Letsencrypt rate limiting problem on the first renewal anniversary and find that 3 sites have not got a valid certificate, with obvious consequence that users get a stark warning message.
I need to revert these to non ssl for a week.
With the multisite plugin, I can override ssl. I have removed the ssl directive from the affected domains in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/mydomain.org.conf
However I am still getting pushed to https on 2 of the 3 domains, unless I use incognito browser session. Is it possible to force the non-ssl?
.htaccess has no references to the domains and using Debug everything appears to be OK, except perhaps:
The ssl testpage returned the error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate
Am I missing something? (caching and google’s listing are going to affect users)
Any pointers/advice gratefully received.May 18, 2017 at 3:08 pm #37738
This sounds like your browser is forcing SSL. If you would force http on the site, this would result in a redirect loop. In that case the only way to fix is to clear the browser cache.May 18, 2017 at 4:14 pm #37740
I see. It may well be caching, so I guess users will experience a few problems until such time as I can get a valid cert next week. There are some other strange things going on, but I will see if they fix themselves before posting again!
Thank you Rogier for the quick response.
