Question

Site redirected you too many times.

I created a Wordpress site following up this tutorial - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lemp-on-ubuntu-18-04, haven’t configured ufw firewall, skipped that part

After installing SSL, I’m getting “syscodes.io redirected you too many times” error…

Here is the server block file below

server {
        root /var/www/html;
        index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
        server_name syscodes.io www.syscodes.io;

        location / {
                #try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
        }

        location ~ \.php$ {
                include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
                fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.2-fpm.sock;
        }

        location ~ /\.ht {
                deny all;
        }
           location = /favicon.ico { log_not_found off; access_log off; }
    location = /robots.txt { log_not_found off; access_log off; allow all; }
    location ~* \.(css|gif|ico|jpeg|jpg|js|png)$ {
        expires max;
        log_not_found off;
    }

    listen 443 ssl; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/syscodes.io/fullchain.pem; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/syscodes.io/privkey.pem; # managed by Certbot
    include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf; # managed by Certbot
    ssl_dhparam /etc/letsencrypt/ssl-dhparams.pem; # managed by Certbot


}
server {
    if ($host = www.syscodes.io) {
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    } # managed by Certbot


    if ($host = syscodes.io) {
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    } # managed by Certbot


        listen 80;
        server_name syscodes.io www.syscodes.io;
    return 404; # managed by Certbot




}

Hello,

I think that your Wordpress site and home URLs would need to be updated.

You have to change the site and the home URLs from http://yourdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com so that it matches the 301 redirect that you now have.

After that make sure to clear the cache of your browser and test this again.

Hope that this helps! Regards, bobby
