[SOLVED] 301 redirect loop on all pages except homepage

Recommended Posts

I know these posts have been created a lot and I've trawled through a bunch and can't seem to find a solution for my current problem.

I moved a PW site from my own DigitalOcean droplet > it's own Droplet and the homepage works fine but every other page gets stuck in a 301 redirect loop.

I used curl to debug it a bit:

curl -vvv
*   Trying
* Connected to ( port 80 (#0)
> GET /products/ HTTP/1.1
> Host:
> User-Agent: curl/7.54.0
> Accept: */*
< HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
< Date: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 12:03:55 GMT
< Server: Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu)
< Expires: Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT
< Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate
< Pragma: no-cache
< X-Powered-By: ProcessWire CMS
< Set-Cookie: wire=de9ifnvlqr75l546fg66a1tkrd; path=/; HttpOnly
< Upgrade: h2,h2c
< Connection: Upgrade
< Location: /products/
< Content-Length: 0
< Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
* Connection #0 to host left intact

And in the Network tab in Chrome it seems to just keep redirecting to the same page and then eventually errors out.


My .htaccess file is exactly how it was on the other DigitalOcean droplet and I have no idea where to go to now. I don't have any SSL set up yet either so no modifications to any vhosts files.

Any immediate thoughts or has anyone had this issue before?

@a-ok Works for me... did you fix it?

I just fixed it. Turns out `sudo a2enmod rewrite` wasn't enabled 🤨FOUR HOURS LATER.

Sorry for wasting everyone's time.
