Hello my multisite does not have wildcard ssl. The subdomains I created are giving the ssl error. I want to force subdomains to http.

    Hello Faith,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Please go to "Network Admin -> Sites -> All sites" and click "Edit" for each of your sub-sites. Take a look at the protocol prefix used for the "Site Address (URL)" value there. If it's "https://" change it to "http://" and that would set selected sub-site to use non-SSL connection.

    That should be good enough unless there's some additional tool (like a plugin or a .htaccess) rule that's causing "forced redirect" for entire network.

    Let me know if that worked for you please.

    Best regards,

    Hello Fatih!

    Let's then make sure about what the problem is :slight_smile: Here's how I understand that:

    1. There's an SSL certificate installed for your Multisite but it is not a wild-card certificate
    2. As a result you can access your main site via "https://" just fine but...
    3. If you access any of the sub-sites via "https://" that gives a security warning and...
    4. If you go to any sub-site you are currently directed to "https://" connection resulting in that error.

    Is that correct?

    If so, can you please tell me this:

    1. Is "https://" forced on your main site?
    2. If you try to manually put "http://" into sub-site address your are redirected to the "https://" URL or can you then access the site? I'm asking if currently https:// is forced for sub-sites too.
    3. How the "https://" is forced for the main site:
    - is Site URL set to https?
    - or is it forced by .htaccess?
    - or any other way?

    I'm asking all this in order to understand your setup to be able to give you a solution.

    Best regards,
