Why multiple redirect after installing SSL Certificate?

We setup a website in DigitalOcean. The website is running on Sharetribe server which is running on port 3000. The website is running properly there on HTTP.

Later we need to install SSL certificate for the website. For that we have done the following steps:

  • We first install Apache into the same server.
  • Then we install HTTPS certificate (SSL) into the Apache server.
  • And then redirect to Sharetribe 3000 port from Apache port 443 After doing the above changes the website is giving “Multiple redirect” error. Is there anything more that we need to do to avoid the error? Please suggest what changes should we do or what may be the probable reason for this error.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Alex,

Thank you for your reply. We are using a GoDaddy SSL certificate. Is there anything else that we need to do in the settings except the one that you suggested.

Hello, @sushilcn

Could you please let us know if you’re using Let’s Encrypt or a paid SSL Certificate? I know for sure that Sharetribe is working fine when installing SSL using certbot with Apache as well.

Also make sure to set the ssl to true in the config/config.yml

    always_use_ssl: true

Let me know how it goes.

Regards, Alex
