[resolved] After clearing 404 errors site goes down due to loop (10 posts)

    My site goes down after clearing 404 errors because of a loop trying to access wp-admin. I had to disable the latest version due to this error. Also notices that the fixed links in the backend have the referral link followed by the fixed link. Could this be caused by old data in the database because I had some problems when updating previous versions of the plugin?

    I haven't been able to reproduce the error on clearing 404 errors.

    I did find a bug in the display of redirects in the log where I somehow manage to duplicate the string. This has to be a typo that I did not catch. I will find it and release a bug fix.

    Thanks,

    Keith

    I get a loop of the following after clearing the 404 errors that ends up taking my site down.

    I looked into the code. If there is a 404 on a non WP file, the plugin logs the information and then returns. The plugin takes no action and does not do a redirect.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think that the plugin is causing the redirect loop.

    The wp-admin/wp-admin structure is troubling, so I will find out what that is about. It could be the plugin is not getting the correct path to the plugins file, and this is initiating the loop in some wordpress internal function.

    The plugin does seem to be working and I don't see the error after clearing the 404 errors anymore.

    After doing more testing it looks as if the update to the "Broken Link Checker" plugin was throwing the site offline due to very high CPU load. I limited the CPU on that and the site recovered and I do not see that redirect error anymore.

    I still don't know why there is an issue with the path.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Just checked the paths and they are now correct! The only issue left is the duplicate string. There must have been a problem with the saved settings that got reset during the clean install (even though the settings were still there on a fresh install).

    The string dupe error is a true bug. I made a change and I didn't follow through on it everywhere. The version I am testing fixes it and I will put it out on blogseye.com as a beta as soon as I am sure it works.

    I have a new job and I have had no time to work on my "fun" projects. The last thing that I did was start adding the ability to translate the plugin messages into other languages, but I only got a little way through - there are lots of places that need translation. I will spend a weekend when I get a chance and release a new version, but that will be the last one for a while.

    There is always the beta test at BlogsEye.com. I run that version on all of my websites.

    Please download and install the beta program. This is what I have running on all my sites and it fixes the redirection loop.

    get it at http://www.blogseye.com
