  • I have been noticing this error in my server logs along with intermittent 500 Internal Server Error pages.

    [Tue Mar 2 20:59:10 2010] [error] [client x.x.x.x] mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use ‘RewriteOptions MaxRedirects’ to increase the limit if neccessary.

    In my .htaccess, I set the max redirects to 500 with:

    RewriteOptions MaxRedirects=500

    But that only leads to the following error:

    [Tue Mar 2 21:03:09 2010] [error] [client] Request exceeded the limit of 20 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use ‘LimitInternalRecursion’ to increase the limit if necessary. Use ‘LogLevel debug’ to get a backtrace.

    And the 500 errors remain.

    I’m nearly pulling my hair out in frustration from this. Please advise!

    Here is my .htaccess file if it helps:

    addhandler x-httpd-php5-cgi .php

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    RewriteOptions MaxRedirects=500
    # END WordPress
