Default Change from a secure ssl web site to a normal one http

Hi. What changes do I need to make in the config Files in order to get back from a secure ssl web site to a Normal one with http instead of https. The things is I do not plan to operate a commercial on line store for the moment, and I having problems with users trying t access my web site, because my own signed certificate is not accepted for majority of browsers, so I will need to pay for a valid certificate.
Thanks

Comment all the SSL related lines in your virtualhost part of the apache config.

Or if you're using ISPConfig3: uncheck the "SSL" checkbox and save the changes.

But I think first I am going to try with CACERT. A community driven certificate authority that issues certificates to the public at large for free.

Yes, that's true, but the clients who visit your ssl site need to have cacert added to their serverlist as certified certificate authorities.

Default Certified certificate authority

Yes you are correct. It will more easily for a user accepts the browser warning and then go head into the site adding an exception, rather than import the Certificate issued by CACERT and add to their serverlist as certified certificate authority. I already check iexplorer and Firefox and not include CACERT as a certification authority. But at the end for now is going to be easier to have the site without ssl. Thanks
