Too many redirects

I have a website hosted on my own servers along with about 16 other Concrete 5 sites. This one site has developed a problem. I cannot work out if it is to do with the database or one of the add-ons. If I try to open in Safari I get a message saying too many redirects. The page is obviously re-directing to itself but I cannot see how to get out of this problem. I have restored the database to a previous version but that has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions. The URL is and is a university law society website.

try opening the site.php and commenting out the BASE_URL and DIR_REL lines

I tried commenting out those two lines but I am still getting the re-directs. Any other ideas?

Except there are 15 other Concrete5 sites on the same server all set up in a similar manner and these are all working fine. The only change the client has made is the installation of the jack image caption add-on. Prior to that it worked OK. Can I disable this add-on from the database to see if this is the cause?

you can (kinda) backup the db first,
From the Packages table you can delete it,
and the BlockTypes table.

Did you ever figure this out? I'm having a very similar problem. When I try to access the https version of the base url, I get the "too many redirects" error.

Funny, it doesn't do it when I access just an image from the site, with a direct url, only when it calls a page through the concrete framework.
