After installation of quick start package URLs being re-directed to https and now unable to access domain. #helix ultimate #joomla #sp page builder pro

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
On brand new domain that does not yet have SSL certificate, I installed the quick start package for Helix ultimate. I cannot access even backend because for some reason the http url is re:directed to https-. and the https will not work.. I have no re-directs anywhere and the DNS is correct. So, I now have a totally non-functioning URL. I have totally wiped the site contents from the server and reinstalled 3 times. Hosting support cannot identify a reason. I have SP page builder pro as well.

If I install only the Helix ultimate template without using the quick start, I loose all the demo material and just get the bare bones framework and I need the demo stuff.

What are my best options to get Joomlla, sp pagebuilder, and Helix up and running without re-directing to HTTPS?

In Joomla HTTPS you can set (and disable) in:
1) Global Configuration > Server > Force HTTPS
2) You can change it also inside a configuration.php file instead of (1)
3) Or by an extra installed plugin/component related to security or SEO
4) Or via .htaccess
But SPPB nor template cannot change that setting (!)

Tip for beginners

1) Install raw Joomla 3.9.2 - test if all works
2) Install Helix Ultimate template - test
3) Install SP Page Builder Pro - test again

In most cases, you do not need demo content from QS.

Thanks for the information. I finally have the solution.
This site is an addon domain. The primary domain had an htaccess file and that file is global and applied to the addon domain. This blocked me by forcing https and my new site does not have a certificate yet.

Up and running now.

Appreciate the comments and suggestions!
