Hey there,

Redirect loops are usually tied to a redirect not formatted properly. While it could be in the Apache configuration, most likely there is a malformed redirect in the /var/www/html/.htaccess file.

As an example, here is the default WordPress .htaccess file:

# 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

Happy coding,
