Wordpress Droplet is " Redirected you too many times."

Hello friends,

I have just fixed a DNS error by adding an A record to my root domains: BridgeTribe.com, and jgf111.com, that points to my Wordpress Droplets IP.

The new error I am receiving is as follows for both domains/droplets:

This page isn’t working

jgf111.com redirected you too many times.

www.bridgetribe.com 1 A / 3 NS

BridgeBurningBush NYC2 / More
www.jgf111.com 1 A / 3 NS

Let me know if I need to provide more info.

Hi @jfagan

Post your VirtualHost configurations. Run this command to see your configuration locations:

sudo apache2ctl -S
  • From PC:
    Jakes-MBP-8:~ jake$ Sudo apache2ctl -S
    Sudo: apache2ctl: command not found
    Jakes-MBP-8:~ jake$

    root@BridgeBurningBush:~# sudo apache2ctl -S
    VirtualHost configuration:
    *:80 BridgeBurningBush.localdomain (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf:1)
    ServerRoot: “/etc/apache2”
    Main DocumentRoot: “/var/www/html”
    Main ErrorLog: “/var/log/apache2/error.log”
    Mutex default: dir=“/var/lock/apache2” mechanism=fcntl
    Mutex mpm-accept: usingdefaults
    Mutex watchdog-callback: using
    Mutex rewrite-map: usingdefaults
    PidFile: “/var/run/apache2/apache2.pid”
    Define: DUMP
    Define: DUMPRUNCFG
    User: name=“www-data” id=33
    Group: name=“www-data” id=33

    For this, I am having a problem with my ssh key

      Okay, then post the content of this file:


      Are you running the two sites on different web servers? If so, why not the same?

      • I ran this code and it said access denied.

        • @jfagan

          You cannot run that as a command - it’s a file.
          You can run this to show the contents of the file:

          sudo cat /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf
