Error - Too many redirects


Starting a new thread because any of the existing posts did not solve the issue.

On my website - I am getting the error, Too many redirects.

I just installed the website using the commands.

ee site create --wp --php7 --letsencrypt

This is the 2nd site on my VPS. The first one is working flawlessly.

What am I doing wrong?

  1. I have updated the correct URLs in wp-config.php as well.
  2. I created a blank .htaccess file

Both of these solution did not help.

Update: On investigating in Chrome’s Network tools, i saw that is redirecting to itself

Since, i have just installed WP, this can not be any plugin. What could be it, I have even checked the DNS health for my domains.


I have just to visited your website and there wasn’t any error about “too many redirects”.

I have been able to fix the issues.

Here is what I did

  • Uninstall the site by ee site delete
  • Re-add the site, but do not activate ssl yet.
  • set up the site without SSL first.
  • when site is properly working, only then install SSL

I hope it will help someone else facing problem similar to mine.
