IIS8 – HTTP automatically forwards to HTTPS – Managing your servers can streamline the performance of your team by allowing them to complete complex tasks faster. Plus, it can enable them to detect problems early on before they get out of hand and compromise your business. As a result, the risk of experiencing operational setbacks is drastically lower.

But the only way to make the most of your server management is to perform it correctly. And to help you do so, this article will share nine tips on improving your server management and fix some problem about windows, iis, http, https, iis-8.

Currently I am running two sites (each one has an app Pool). One for HTTPS which is called cloud and the other one for HTTP content called headsup.

When I browse to the domain.com/cloud it all works fine through HTTPS automatically. But when I browse to http://domain.com/headsup, the browser automatically tries to reach https://domain.com/headsup.

I have limited knowledge about IIS and I can’t seem to figure this out. The HTTP site is bound to port *:80 and HTTPS is bound to port *:443. I have no forwards, rules or any other settings configured. Where should I look in order to separate HTTP and HTTPS back to how it used to be?

Thanks in advance!

Solution :

The cloud instance required SSL for the whole server so I disabled that. The problem was solved after a reboot of the machine.
