After connection, its only redirecting

  • Pratik Bagaria


    Hi there,

    I am excited to work on BuddyPress. I copied the files on my ftp server and started the installation process. First time I got an error, and I was asked to edit the database details on wp-config.php.

    I did so and got the connection working, but now when I enter the url I get an error saying “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

    What maybe causing this error?

    The website is and its an addon domain on my server.

  • That might be the problem. You need to get WPMU working before worrying about BuddyPress.

    Looking at the URL, it thinks you are trying to register a new hosted blog at “”.

    When you installed WPMU, in the installation screen it asks you for a server name to use. What did you enter? I am guessing you entered your server’s IP address?

    If that’s the case, delete .htaccess and wp-config.php and drop the database, and try reinstalling, but enter “” during the installation.

    Hi Paul,

    Well on the installation screen, while installing WPMU, i did not entered ip address, i typed and all the necessary database details.

    I will try again, after deleting .htaccess and wp-config.php

    I will update you.



    Is hosted as its own domain, or does it do a redirect?

    Hey there.

    It worked…

    Installation of WPMU is done…

    But now I need to “add a wildcard record to my DNS records.”

    I am on LunarPages, and I am searching on how to do that…

    There is no redirect… its an addon domain to my hosting account.
