Support » Installing WordPress » Redirect Loop on WordPress Install

  • Hi
    I get redirect loop on WordPress sub-domain install and it doesn’t go to the step 2 of the installation process.
    It makes wp-config file but no htaccess I made the htaccess manually but it gives 403 error.

    Why I get it?
    How to solve it?

    Thanks

    403 forbidden means that your browser isn’t able to load the scripts up because your server isn’t allowing it. This is a hard one to solve. Because anything could be blocking the server:
    – Most likely this is a server permissions/ownership issue, so ask your host what’s going on
    – check your .htaccess files for anything strange.
    – make sure your server settings are not overriding the .htaccess file
    – try a full Manual Upgrade, to make sure all the WordPress files are there and correct..
    – Make sure to backup everything (including database) before doing any action, in case.

    Quite often the 403 error could be caused by a corrupt .htaccess file, or it could be related to wrong file permissions. Try removing the .htaccess file you created.

    About the redirect loop, check your web server log files for more information about the problem.
