  • Hello,
    i have a site which was running on old multi-network setup, recently i have updated the site to latest version .
    But i have notice
    “Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use ‘LimitInternalRecursion’ to increase the limit if necessary. Use ‘LogLevel debug’ to get a backtrace.”

    error written multiple times in server error_log.

    After doing some more research I found that it has some thing to do with “RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]” this rule in htaccess, when every any user hit a url which does not exists under wp-content/admin/include it generated the 500 – recursion error .

    when i comment out this rule things seems to be working fine , But i am not sure why these rules are been added.

    Also I have multi-network site just for restricting normal user from access of theme and plugin, so its not any subdomain or subfolder installation ,The site is installed in root folder
