How do I remove https secure connection?

I had lets encrypt on and I think I disabled it along with deleting the config files that were related to SSL. I then reloaded my apache and checked in incognito mode and I still get the ‘This site can’t provide a secure connection’ response in Chrome. I want to connect to my website without a secure connection. What should I try now?

You’re connecting over http already, Modern web browsers expect HTTPS so anytime someone connects to a website over HTTP they will see the error that says this site cannot provide a secure connection. If you want to continue to connect to the site you need to click on the link at the bottom of the error it should say tell me more and then once you do that you should see another link that says proceed to x site anyway. Click that and you will see the site. Keep in mind anyone that goes to the site will have to do the same thing. The only way to get rid of that error message is by forwarding to HTTPS and requiring HTTPS connections.
