Redirect HTTP to HTTPS getting Connection Refused

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I want to redirect https requests to http on an apache server. I have updated my .htaccess file as described in this previous question: Redirect HTTPS to HTTP However, this doesn't work and gives (in Chrome): Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection. I am guessing that the server isn't enabled to handle 443 requests. So my question is - is there a graceful way to handle this? (HowTos)
