MaxRedirects error since upgrade to WPMU 1.2.1 (3 posts)

    From the moment I upgraded to WPMU 1.2.1, my error_log started filling up with these couplets:

    [Tue Apr 17 23:28:34 2007] [error] [client xx.xx.xx.xx] mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary., referer:
    [Tue Apr 17 23:28:34 2007] [error] [client xx.xx.xx.xx] 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., referer:

    AFAGK, 'LogLevel debug' can only be used via httpd.conf which I do not have access to, but what does Google know :)

    Interestingly enough - these errors are not generating any 500 errors in the Apache log.

    On upgrade, I removed the 'www redirect' from my .htaccess file, just like it disappeared from htaccess.dist.

    I could try changing the MaxRedirects value but that's the easy way out.

    Any suggestions? Anyone else see this with 1.2.1?

    You're not trying to run WPmu on an addon domain or anything, are you? It's in its own account all by itself, right?

    Not exactly. I'm also running my WPMU 1.2.1 dev environment using a separate domain in that hosting account, but I don't dev often so >90% of the time the dev install is doing nothing. It's password-protected too.

    I've been using this arrangement for the past 6 months starting with 1.0. It's not ideal but it's the best compromise for my current needs.
