I am moving a site from the live server where it has an SSL certificate and is accessed by HTTPS to my localhost. After moving the site over, I get an ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR.

I am uncertain of how to fix the issue. I tried turning off Clean URLs before the move. And I also tried changing the .htaccess file.

    Pretty broad but my first guess is the local server is not setup to respond to traffic on 443 and or , you have no local certificate installed. May want to ask at ServerFault. – Kevin Sep 19 at 21:05

As Kevin suggested in the comments, I did not have a local certificate installed. Using MAMP, I ended up following the instructions here to solve the issue.
