I have recently turned on Multisite network for a domain.

I created a network site as a sub-directory.

When I loaded that site's /wp-admin I received an error:

This page isn’t working

dev.example.com.au redirected you too many times. Try clearing your cookies. ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS

I have cleared my cookies for this domain but the issue remains.

I have renamed plugins to plugins.temp and the issue remains.

I added the following to wp-config.php but the issue remains:

define('ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH', '/');
define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', '');
define('COOKIEPATH', '');
define('SITECOOKIEPATH', '');

This is my .htaccess:

# BEGIN litespeed noabort
<IfModule rewrite_module>
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteRule .* - [E=noabort:1]
</IfModule>
# END litespeed noabort

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]
RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress

Help appreciated.

I followed the advice in this answer, and changed the given .htaccess template by WP Network installation:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) featured/$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ featured/$2 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

To this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

Works now.

    for those about to diff: @Steve removed the directory featured from the target of the two RewriteRules before the last one. In my case, the whole domain ended up in there (featured.example.com) and removing it fixed the problem, too. – kubi Jun 16 '19 at 12:23
