Nginx how to remove www from url?

  • Posted December 26, 2013

Hello - Having a bit of trouble setting up a permanent redirect from “” to “”. After following this article I’m now getting this error “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”
