Instruct Splunk PHP SDK to connect via HTTP not HTTPS


I am having an issue connecting to a Splunk search head with the Splunk PHP SDK:

I get the error below. It is attempt to connect to https://.. and then gives me an SSL error. When I attempt to connect to https://x.x.x.x through my web browser it gives me a similar error so clearly I need to connect to this search head using http, not https.
I cannot figure out how to tell the SDK to connect with http: instead of https. Help?

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Splunk_ConnectException' with message 'SSL connect error' in /var/www/html/eventcount/src/SplunkIndexMonitor/Splunk/Splunk/Http.php:196
