I have a situation here - I am buidling a store in a server that has no SSL and private IP.

The DNS has not propagated to client’s new server and I intend to keep it this way until the store is completed, because the old site still need running. Problem is, PHP5 will not work for temporary URLs therefor I can’t install Magento to client’s new server. I thought it will be less complicated and less problematic if I can develope the site in client’s server that already has a SSL cert installed and able to test the cart with real transaction.

My question, is there problem and what should I know/prevent if I continue develope the site in my server that has no SSL installed.

Thanks!

I think you can safely disable SSL until you have it available and continue development smile

Enabling SSL will only keep sensitive data protected while being sent from server to server. Disabling SSL won’t harm your development at all. Just make sure you keep your DB usernames and passwords very strong, and follow the post installation instructions for Magento, or else people may be able to see your DB information and hack your site.
