Https to http redirect using htaccess

I'm trying to redirect https://www.example.com to http://www.example.com. I tried the following code in the .htaccess file

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]


This code successfully redirects https://example.com to http://www.example.com. However when I type in https://www.example.com then it gives me a "web page not available" error in the browser.

I have also tried the following 2 codes without success

Attempt 1

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/(.*):NOSSL$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]


Attempt 2

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}


Both above attempts failed. Any suggestions?

Answer

Attempt 2 was close to perfect. Just modify it slightly:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
