Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

New Install: Redirect Loop

Postby rtbrown » Wed Sep 09, 2009 5:49 am


I've been working through an initial installation. I've been unable to use the browser-based installation due to the following error:

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

I've tried Google's Chrome as well which provides a similar message. I've changed the permissions on the directories referenced in the README, created the DB, etc...

When I enter the initial URL to start installation, (http://www.mydomain.com/submit/) the URL resolves to: http://www.steadystep.com/submit/index. ... ex/install.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Hi rtbrown

If you haven't solved this yet, and for anyone else who may be stuggling with the same problem, try turning disable_path_info on in config.inc.php.
