If you have followed the guide above and cleared all cookies and caches on your browser, but still getting the “redirect loop” error, then you should check the .htaccess file again. However, this method is only for the owner or manager of the website, who could access to the control panel of the website to modify files.

In order to test if the problem comes from the .htaccess file, just simply remove it (you should backup that file before removing it) and reload the website again. If the redirect loop issue is gone, then the .htaccess file is definitely the cause of this error.

Also, if you have recently installed any new script / plugin / add-on for your website, try to disable it and test your website again. If you are using WordPress, make sure you fill right website URL on “General Settings” section as well as the wp-config.php file.
