mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached
Insert Link to Page
With the content area to edit in a small area with none of the wysiwyg options.... this means its impossible for my client to edit the site
We have looked at the log files and this is the only error message we are getting
[Mon Aug 15 22:46:03 2011] [error] [client 18.104.22.168] mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary.
We have tried it with modrewrite on and off using the .htaccess file and deleting that file to see if either one helps.. cant solve it and cant find a way to get the wysiwyg editing function back
Don't play with .htaccess unless you have to.
Are you sure your server/hosting provider is playing properly?
Quite a few 'Hosters' do need careful handling...
Have you tried clearing the browser and C5 cache?
Which C5 version are you using?
I upgraded to the latest version of concrete yesterday and all other errors stopped but still get the maximum redirects error.
I am now going to set the site up on our server using the same files and database and see if it still has the error... if it goes then I can go back to my client and say " its the host" then leave it upto them to decide... if it still has the error... help.......
Maybe there is something in the .htacces mod_rewrite that is allowing an infinite loop because of the way a path is specified. It won't necessarily be a site page, it could be a graphic that triggers a loop.
Or maybe something within your C5 site is redirecting from within the pages and causing a loop of mutual recursion between C5 and the rewrite rules.
I have experienced problems with "RewriteBase" on my development system, but not online. You can also get looping of error pages if a 404 or 403 page is missing (and you can break such loops with further tricks in the rewrite rules).
