I followed this tutorial (Step 6. Test your Blog) to see if everything is fine before updating my dns settings (Step 7.)

I’m getting an ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECT from my browser when trying to reach one of my 3 websites on DigitalOcean after updating my hosts file on my computer with the droplet IP (IP Address: I guess there is something wrong with the htaccess file and the virtual hosts.

I have 3 wordpress sites duplicated from another hosting, the configuration includes LAMP on Ubuntu 12.04, varnish, Mod_Rewrite, UFW, swap memory, phpmyadmin, pagespeed

I followed this tutorial to have multiple virtual hosts

In /etc/apache2/ports.conf I have :

NameVirtualHost Listen

Here is one of the 3 websites /etc/apache2/sites-available/

<VirtualHost> ServerName DocumentRoot /var/www/parisasiatique/ </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost> ServerName Redirect permanent / </VirtualHost>

Here is one of .htaccess for /var/www/parisasiatique/

BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule>

END WordPress

The 3 websites have the same issue :, and

DO support is saying that the URL bar switches from and, as it goes back and forth between the two.

What can I do to solve the issue ?
