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, ( the URL resolves to: ... 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
