How to disable ssl (https) from opencart e-commerce Version

If you don't have the SSL certificate and not willing to spend some money for your opencart shop - disabling it maybe the best to get the annoying message saying the site is unsafe. The SSL is actually using the https in front of the domain name and it is part of the admin, checkout, etc. If it is not disable you will always get the message saying the page is unsecure. Since most people not willing to spend some money especially those with the trial version can actually disable the SSL (https) requirement pretty straight forward. Just follow this instruction.

1. Login to the Open Cart admin page usually
2. Click on the Gear icon>>Settings
3. Click Server Tab and select option = No for the Use SSL

This will disable the https and no more warning should appear on the admin page and also the checkout page. See picture for reference.


  1. how can i do that if i cannot access the "admin"?
    is it possible from the database or something?

    1. It's better and easier to do it from the admin and anyway you need to access the admin to manage all the open cart content

  2. Try following steps.

    open the file

    find this in the config file

    // HTTPS
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', '');
    define('HTTPS_IMAGE', '');

    Change to this

    // HTTPS
    define('HTTPS_SERVER', '');
    define('HTTPS_IMAGE', '');

    Now try login to the backend
