Redirect Loop - Multisite Network installaion with SubDomains (2 posts)

    Hi all, this one is sending me spare... for no reason today i was working away on my sites, ready for launch in 24 hours and all of a sudden I started to get the redirect loop error, when i say working, I was not installing anything, I was not touching the admin, I was simply uploading content.

    The ONLY thing I installed today was something called geo redirect - yes sounds like the culprit, but I only installed it on one of the sites site, set it to redirect people coming from china to the china site, then removed the setting as I wasn't ready - so far I have changed the folder i plugins to old_.... I installed this about 5 hours before the redirect issue started happening, so I don't think it's related.

    I have two sites, with the same host, dedicated, same box but different instances...

    Both sites are running WP network in domain, with BP_Multisite



    Sites are bouncing back and forth between www and none www in the URL then browsers says there is a redirect loop.

    Sites are virtualsport.net and virtualsportchina.net

    Host is saying 'NOT US' I argued someone had been playing with DNS.. noop, seems not they say!

    .htaccess below:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    #BEGIN s2Member GZIP exclusions
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    	RewriteEngine On
    	RewriteBase /
    	RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|\?|&)s2member_file_download\=.+
    	RewriteRule .* - [E=no-gzip:1]
    # END s2Member GZIP exclusions

    wp-config below:

    <?php define('WP_CACHE', true);
    define ( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define ( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true );
    $base = '/';
    define ('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'virtualsport.net');
    define ( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define ( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define ( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    I've read lots of help docs on here about other peoples issues, none of the fixes have worked.

    Gonna be a long night for me, need to fix this one ... any help much appreciated.

    Strange thing is, I have always used and always do go to sites without the http://www... but if I go to a link I know used to work


    It returns this


    Adds the www and removes the / between .net and members

    Both sites are installed in public_html

    Check Wildcard redirect at mxtoolbox.com, seems fine, shows *.virtualsport.net redirects to the same IP as virtualsport.net


    [No bumping. If it's that urgent, consider hiring someone.]
