How to Fix Error Too Many Redirects Issue in WordPress

How to fix the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS on WordPress

Unfortunately, NONE of the sites that I’ve visited over the past 3 days address this issue as it pertains to running WordPress under IIS 8.0 on Windows Server 2012 R2. Note that there is NO .htaccess file, there is only a wp-config.php file. I have searched and searched and searched for a solution to this issue, with zero luck thus far. Please note that the ADMIN area (for WordPress), works fine. It is only when I try to fire up the site itself that this “too many re-direct” issue comes up. In fact, many of the sites I’ve visited state that the issue is caused by “the hosting company.” Unfortunately, I AM the hosting company, so this does not help me. Please help! This is driving me crazy!

Generally, ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error happens due to misconfigured redirection issue. The WordPress SEO has a friendly URL structure which uses a form of redirection when it assigns the URLs to your new posts and pages. If a different tool is improperly programmed or configured, it can cause a looping effect. For example, the WordPress SEO plugin allows you to remove category base from category URLs simply by redirecting users to a URL without category base.
