Community Tip - Fixing ERR TOO MANY REDIRECTS



Try the suggestions in this Community Tip to help you fix ERR TOO MANY REDIRECTS.

If your SSL setting on the Crypto tab is Flexible and if your origin server is configured to redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS, server responses back to Cloudflare are encrypted. Since Cloudflare is expecting HTTP traffic, it keeps resending the same request, resulting in a redirect loop. This causes browsers to display “The page isn’t redirecting properly” or “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS” errors.

Quick Fix Ideas

  1. Remove the HTTPS redirects in your origin server.

  2. To ensure all requests between the browser and Cloudflare are encrypted, you can use an Always Use HTTPS page rule and that way avoid a redirect loop.

  3. If you host a Wordpress site, read about potential issues with Flexible SSL.

  4. Enable Full or Full (Strict) mode. Learn more about all the SSL options available through Cloudflare.
