[resolved] Redirect Loop (5 posts)

    I have just installed WordPress 2.7. My admin section works fine and the blog was working until I selected a permalink option that wasn't the default. Now from /blog where WordPress is set up Safari returns a redirect loop:

    "Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://www.../blog/”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page."

    I have reset the permalinks to default, and I when I view the blog through the theme viewer it works. Does htaccess need changing? At the moment it reads:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    # END WordPress


    EDIT I am storing and running WordPress from the same directory /blog

    Solved. Speak to your host about mod_rewrite if you suffer similar.

    I have the same issue, was there ever a resolution?

    I got this when upgrading from the following

    2.3.3 to 2.5.0
    2.3.3. to 2.5.1
    2.3.3. to 2.6.5

    What to do?

    This is not yet resolved, spoke to butcliffe and he agrees to go back to the forums.
