  • copy paste the souce code files as is. do not create a web folder just straight the project name
  • in the sql file change the domainname.com without trailing slash to the new one.
  • then change https://domainname.com to http://domainname.com
  • make sure you have the .htaccess file in place
  • In .htaccess make sure there is no redirect to https.
  • For an existing site, if the site is redirected to https, check if simple ssl redirect plugin is installed or not. if yes then disable it.
