If you don't have SSL certification, but you accidentally enable SSL to secure your site by enable either setting: 1 or setting: 2 There is a certain that you are unable to access your site anymore (No longer able to access login/register page, or even the site is dead completely - Can't access any page). Here is how to resolve this issue. 1. How to disable 'Force HTTPS for Logged in Users' This case you are still able to access welcome page, but you can't access any other page. - You need to access the database of your phpFox site - Go to table phpfox_setting (Your table name might be different with the prefix, choose the correct one accordingly) - Looking for 'force_secure_site' in var_name column - Change from 1 to 0 in column value_actual. 1-1   You need to clear cache after this, but you can't clear cache normal way in Admin CP, so you need to clear cache manually by removing folder: .../PF.Base/file/cache   2. How to disable 'Secure Pages with HTTPS' This case you are still able to access welcome page, but you can't access any other page. - You need to access the database of your phpFox site - Go to table phpfox_setting (Your table name might be different with the prefix, choose the correct one accordingly) - Looking for 'force_https_secure_pages' in var_name column - Change from 1 to 0 in column value_actual. 2-1 You need to clear cache after this, but you can't clear cache normal way in Admin CP, so you need to clear cache manually by removing folder: .../PF.Base/file/cache   3. How to disable 'Force HTTPS for Logged in Users' & 'Secure Pages with HTTPS' This case your site will always automatically transfer to a https address, hence it will be unable to access completely. You need to perform the change on both values in database then clear the cache as instructed in section 1 & 2.
