Google Chrome broke my wordpress website with https redirects

Just a quick heads up, google chrome have released their latest browser update which left out a major bug fix, which causes wordpress sites running certain plugins useless.

After several hours of panic, checking server configuration and unhappy customers, we found through THIS SITE that google chrome was the culprit. and that it was not going to be fixed till the 27th of July when they released the next update…

So, that not being an option… we have come up with a workaround to fix the site continually trying to load https instead of http.

put this little pice of code into your .htaccess file and BAM, the problem is gone.

# BEGIN Resolve Chrome Issue
RequestHeader unset HTTPS
# END Resolve Chrome Issue”

hopefully you found this article before pulling your hair out.
