[Resolved] Windows server infinite redirect after upgrading to 3.1

    I’m getting an infinite redirect loop after upgrading from 3 to 3.1. I’m running this on a Windows machine using the ISAPIRewrite module from Helicon. The permalinks were working fine prior to the upgrade and I’ve already tried resaving them via the admin and restarting IIS on the machine in case anything was being cached.

  • Hi everyone,

    Try the plugin:

    It worked for me. I’m now running 3.1 on our IIs server will all pages loading just fine.

    I just tried that plugin linked by jarnez on my dev environment and that appears to get it working again. Perhaps this will clue the dev team in as to what might be causing this issue.

    jarnez – if I could kiss you I would!!

    That’s fixed it for me – hopefully whatever that does, the devs can check what changed in v 3.1 and get a ‘proper’ fix into their code.

    Yea! I’m glad it worked for you! After I installed it, I wanted to kiss the plugin developer =)

    So does this qualify as resolved or is there a “kinda resolved but not ideal” option?

    Well, since some of us can’t even access our admin I guess not.

    It might help if somebody that can reproduce this problem could provide a dump of their $_SERVER variable (when the problem is happening, obviously, not when you have a plugin fixing it).

    Feel free to sanitize out what you think might be sensitive information first.

    I can also log into the back-end but the main page is down on a Windows hosting.

    I did the following – switched themes, deactivated all plugins, re-uploaded the wp-admin and wp-includes files, changed permalink settings – still no workie.

    Hope this gets noticed because we’re dead as a doornail now. Oh, and FYI, our blog is at http://www.mercuryleads.com/lead-generation-blog/.

    I can reproduce it and give you what ever you want… just tell me how to give it to you.

    Just send me a detailed message and I’ll give you what ever you want (I have full access to the server, but I’m not a server tech person, give me detailed instructions and I’ll give you what ever you want).

    I guess I need to read up on going back a version.. I guess I can’t get away with copying files in from 3.0.5 but leaving the db as is? (any db changes for 3.1?)

    This did not work for me. At all.

    I then exported my tanked 3.1 upgrade database and imported it into a fresh 3.0.5 and it tanked that too.

    I finally went in and found the servers back-ups of our mysql databases and am in the process of doing a complete delete and fresh install of 3.0.5 with yesterdays database. 🙁

    Of course now I’m having an issue deleting the plug in folder- the damn thing will not release one of the related captcha plug in files, says we can’t access the file because it is in use (and I’m remotely logged into the server). ARG!!! DIE! DIE! DIE!

    jarnez,
    That did it for me also.
    Thanks a million…

    Thanks, Problem solved with the plugin provided above by jarnez. Well played.

    Yeah but I’d hardly call using a plug-in a fix, more like a band-aid.

    Whats going to happen when they fix this bug and you have the plug in installed(?). 🙁
