Title: How do I disable SSL during the forum transfer?
Post by: RandomDude on April 13, 2019, 06:29:44 AM
I'm cloning the forum which has SSL enabled to the testing environment. I edited settings.php file and removed https in $boardurl parameter. I also changed all of the server directory related paths. However, when I open the forum, it still forces HTTPS (no redirects are forced on the server). Do I need to edit the database as well?


Thanks!

Are you using SMF 2.1 or SMF 2.0?

Untick the 'force SSL' option in the server settings?

Untick the 'force SSL' option in the server settings?

I would need to do that by manually editing the database, where is that option located? Thanks!

If you're running SMF 2.1 the setting is in,

Admin > Maintenance > Server Settings: Scroll down to "Forum SSL mode " You'll see a dropdown.
