Fix redirect error in WordPress

When you see this error it indicates something is causing too many redirects and the server can't complete the request, an infinite redirection loop. This issue is typically caused by incorrect settings for the domain, but could also be caused by third party services like CloudFlare.

The error messages as seen in various browsers:

  • Google Chrome
          This page isn't working
          example.com redirected you too many times.
          Try clearing your cookies.
          ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS
        
  • Firefox
          The page isn't redirecting properly
          Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for
          this address in a way that will never complete.      
        
  • Microsoft Edge
          Hmmm...can't reach this page      
        

Note: Always backup your WordPress site before modifying any files.

  1. Connect to your website with an FTP client.
  2. Edit the wp-config.php file located in the remote directory your WordPress site is live in.
  3. Update or add the following lines below define('WP_DEBUG', false);:
        define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com/wordpress');
        define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://example.com');
    • WP_SITEURL is the Site Address (URL) in General Settings.
    • WP_HOME is the Site Address (URL) in General Settings.
    • Protocol should be either http or https, but never both.
    • Sub-domain should be with www or without www, but never both.
    • Domain can be different if the site requires it(e.g. http://example.com/blog).
  4. Save the changes.
  5. Clear your browser cache.
  6. Navigate to your site in a browser to test if the error is gone.
