Most of the case you will be in first three. In these cases, problem is that, your WordPress address and site address are not the same. This made your WordPress Installation to give Too Many Redirect Error.

T solve this, go to WordPress Dashboard> Settings > General settings and make sure your WordPress address and site address are the same. We often make mistake in www subdomain part.  So if one field contains www subdomain, it should be there in another one also.  

If you couldn’t login to WordPress dashboard, then make necessary changes in files using text editor and upload it once more. 

wp-config.php file in root folder of your WordPress is the file which needs modification.

Add these two lines



Just update this file, you are good to go!

Sometimes, this error may occur after updating database using export file from localhost. Reason is the same – WordPress address and site address are not the same. Make these to same address using phpMyadmin. 

• Login to phpMyadmin. There will be list of database on left side.

• Select the appropriate one (check wp-config file in case you forgot database name) and it will show you list of tables. “wp-options” is the one you have to choose.

Go through wp-options table and locate “siteurl” and “home” without quotes in “options_name” field. 

• Make sure “option_value” for these two are the same else correct it.

Solution for 4

Deactivate the same in Yoast settings because it may conflict with some Security plugins you have already installed. If deactivating this doesn’t solve the issue, you have to deactivate all plugins one by one starting from Security Plugin if any. If your WordPress site has only few number of plugins, delete all plugins, make a fresh install and activate one by one. 

Solution for 5

In General settings page, you can update your Site Title, Tagline, Set Time zone, etc. While making changes to these, check “WordPress Address” and “Site Address” are the same. If you have read Solution for 1 and 2, answer for this issue is already in your pocket.  

Solution for 6

Check the name servers and make sure you have entered it correctly. Even after this, if it shows up Too Many redirect Issue, you are in safe zone because it may take up to 72 hours to map the domain correctly.

Hope you got your WordPress back!
