How can I disable SSL on ArcGIS server?

I configured SSL on ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 a couple of weeks ago due to another application. I thought everything was working ok but later I realised that I couldn´t log in to ArcGIS server manager anymore, and my WMS Services were not working. I would now like to disable SSL but cannot configure it. When I try to delete my SSL certificate I get the error code 500 - Standard certificate annot be deleted. I have disables SSL on IIS, but this doesn´t help.

Can anyone advise me on what to do?

Hi Robert,

Which URL are you using for accessing the manager?

Are you still using the 6080 port?

If so, try this URL:

Also have a look here:

Hope it helps.

I had to use HTTP instead of HTTPS. Can be used in parallel.

1. Need to check if your server is supporting both HTTP and HTTPS (by default it does). Login to check:

e.g. http://localhost:6080/arcgis/admin/security/config

2. Go ahead and configure new maps using HTTP services (simply use 080 port instead of 443)

e.g. http://localhost:6080/arcgis/rest/services 

3. You can do this by logging into Portal using its HTTP port

e.g. http://localhost:7080/arcgis/home

Hi All,

I'd like to understand the use case for using HTTP instead of defaulting to HTTPS. What's the pain point that switching to HTTP helps to alleviate?

I use it integrated with Oracle WAM , which can use http/https. Easier to configure the integration.
