If you are using plesk in windows, login to windows server via remote desktop.
Enter the following commands in the 'cmd'

C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\bin>sso.exe --disable

In Linux:

# /usr/local/psa/bin/sso --disable


Here in this solution, both http in 8880 and https in 8443 will work. If you want to permanantly disable https in 8443, you can follow the steps shown below.

If you have Windows 2008,

Open IIS.
Expand the Sites menu.
Right click the PleskControlPanel from the site list.
Select Edit Bindings.
Remove the binding for 8443.
Click close.
Restart Plesk for the changes to take effect.

***Most of all sso must be disabled.
