Creating an encrypted website (HTTPS) automatically redirects traffic from the normal website (HTTP) when it shouldn't.

  1. Create a normal website for a Wordpress app. (Hitting it now will return HTTP 200.)
  2. Create an encrypted website for the same Wordpress app using the same domain(s).

Expected: Hitting the normal website (http) should not redirect to to the encrypted website (https).

Actual: The server returns 301 (moved permanently), redirecting to the encrypted URL.

The server continues to return the 301, even after the encrypted website is disabled or deleted. The normal website needs to also be deleted to stop the redirect. The returned headers indicate that this is being served up by nginx, if that's significant.

? ~: curl -I http://mysite.com
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Server: nginx
