Too many redirects issue

Recommended Posts

This is now happening with a second site hosted with the same company: http://claysvehiclerepairs.uk/

UK2, the hosts, are thinking that there is something wrong or not compatible with the htaccess file, but I have no idea what it might be. Clays hasn't even been undated in a while so nothing has changed there. I am at a loss what to do, to be honest.

Both clients have paid for two years on UK2 and have ages left on their contracts.

I am hoping level 2 support might have some answers.

Grr!

Looking a bit at the request and response headers of that site, the only thing i can think of that is causing this problem is Cloudflare, which seems to play a role.

Is this somehow turned on for the problem domains? Try turning it off? Have a look here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25927260/cloudflare-bug-random-302-redirections , these look a lot like your random 5 character folders.

Okay, I have turned Cloudflare off and it seems okay - but I also tried that yesterday with no result.

So, confused?  You bet I am!

Ok, you did not mention that. But at least both sites seem to be working fine when i check them now. So this is a pretty strong indication that somehow Cloudlfare (or better, the way it's set up) is at the root of the problems and not some weird hack. :)

I also forgot to mention all the pacing I did or the late night argument with a bottle of rum :)

Try to load all files (images, scripts, etc.) with a full path including even protocol and domain.

So instead of using this: /site/assets/files/1114/livery-corporate.png

Try this: http://www.justrightmarquees.co.uk/site/assets/files/1114/livery-corporate.png

Maybe this gets the job done: <base href="http://www.justrightmarquees.co.uk/" />

I doubt that will help, though. The browser automatically sends requests in full-URL format...

Arguing with a bottle of rum is always tricky. It may have even lead you to think you turned of Cloudflare while in fact you didn't ;)

If things remain functioning without Cloudflare feel free to mark this one as solved :)
