Solution for Error Too Many Redirects

Here are the steps to resolve too many redirects are:

Solution #1: Disable All Plugins

Make sure to clear the cache of the browser, and then test the site, if the problem persists. If the issue has not been resolved yet, then move on to the next solution.

Solution #2: Confirm Address

A newbie does not understand the difference between a site address and a WordPress address, so they end up having different URLs.

The differences can cause major issues with the page loading because the browser is expecting the site address and then it gets the WordPress address. The error “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS” is cause due to the wrong URL.

You can check the URL by going to WordPress dashboard > Settings > General and then checking Site Address & WordPress Address.

Solution #3: Delete .htaccess

The site runs on a path, and it is created by the .htaccess file the redirection process’s main culprit could be the wrong configuration. In many cases, we have errors due to the wrong configuration, and you can solve them by correcting them.
