I am really struggling with this one - hopefully someone here can help...
I am installing a brand new, fresh version of Wordpress v4.0 (A task I've performed easily 100+ times before without incident)
I have setup a brand new sub-domain and database for it then run the install script... But, everytime I try, I get caught in an infinite loop...
I tried deleting the sub-domain and database and recreating a new, completely different sub-domain and database name but the same thing occurs... I also delete the wp-config.php and start over again but always, when I get to point 4, it gets caught in an infinite loop...
The install process:
- got oo URL
- Select Country
- Click "Let's Go"
- Enter the db_name, db_user, password, host and table prefix and click submit
- Click "run the install"
But every time, I get the same result:
This web page has a redirect loop
The web page at http://www.domainname.com/wp-admin/install.php has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer. Learn more about this problem. Error code: ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS
I tried clearing the cookies but I know that's unrelated because I also went to rexswain.com and viewed the http header and it also gets caught in the same redirect loop...
I don't even know where to start looking!
There is no .htaccess file - 100% confirmed!
And when I check the database - no tables have even been created!
I am perplexed - any advice on how to do some debugging would be awesome!
