The most common WordPress error is the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS. It appears when the settings file for WordPress is misconfigured. The cause of this error can be a WordPress plugin, an improperly configured server, or even an issue with your domain name. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to resolve this problem. Read on to learn about these common causes and ways to fix them.
Redirects allow you to forward a URL to another URL. They are especially useful when you’re moving content from one website to another or changing the permalink structure of a domain. However, if your URL keeps redirecting itself to another, the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error will occur. This error indicates that your browser is caught in an infinite redirection loop. To fix this, simply follow the steps below.
If the problem is caused by a specific plugin, it is possible to disable it from your WordPress dashboard. You can do this in bulk by using the “disable plugins” option in the plugins folder in your WordPress admin dashboard. You can also rename the folder in the plugins directory and delete them at once. As a best practice, you should always back up your website before performing any change.
Another possible cause for an infinite redirect is incorrect. Your Apache or Nginx configuration may not have been setup correctly. If this is the case, it is easy to fix. First, make sure your domain is SSL-enabled and that your CNAME record points to the www-version of the domain. If you use a custom domain name, you can also redirect the website using the CNAME record.
