Support » Installing WordPress » Too many redirects on upgrade.php

  • I have just upgraded a site I am developing to version 2.3 FROM 2.13 following the instructions, I have backed up files, deleted the old version and uploaded the new files without a problem.

    However when I attempt to access my wp-admin/upgrade.php and finish the upgrade I get the following:

    Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://myurl/wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2Fupgrade.php%

    … which repeats

    “This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.”

    There is only one instance of upgrade.php uploaded and I can successfully open the file locally.

    Any ideas please?

  • delete your wp-admin folder and reupload it.

    I have now tried that and it still tells me the page isn’t redirecting properly.

    I was having this problem, too. Disabling the canonical redirection functionality fixed it. Instructions on how to do that are given in dd32’s post here:

    I just finished writing to my host asking them to check rewrite situations since i had an all white-blanked out site even though my db was intact. i had the all-of-the-above list of problems that others seemed to have only 1 part of the problem. dam. i asked my host what could have changed? ask phpmyadmin.
    go in to phpmyadmin, and look at the options table. theres a record for recently edited files. the most recent file is at the bottom of the list. my last file i screwed up was functions.php under my theme directory.
    this is where the lesson of a backup hits me. i scrolled down, found the copy of functions.php i had made before i started breaking things. i restored my backup file and i was good to go.
    i am sorry i do not know what it was that i did to functions.php, but lately it has been all about css. so other folks i saw mentioning theme editing and then walla, a vast whiteness- check myadmin for the most recent file you screwed up and hope you have the backup.
    if not, at least you narrowed it down to the file.

    yes i understood our problem. i too having the same problem…… just you visit
