Posted by Andrew McCombe on Wed May 30, 2018

Ever had a dev site set up and had it 301 redirect to ‘https’, only to find that Google Chrome caches this and you can’t get the ‘http://’ version after? You have? Cool.

Here’s how to clear Chrome’s cache.

  1. Open a new tab and go to chrome://net-internals/#dns
  2. On the top right, there is a small down-arrow. Click this.
  3. Select ‘Clear cache’.

Your cache should be clean and you can visit your http:// version of the site again.
