WordPress 3.1 update: “Could Not Open the Page, Too Many Redirects”

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

This morning after upgrading my blog to WordPress 3.1 the front side of my blog suddently stopped working.
All my browsers got stuck trying to load www.marcomc.com and Mobile Safari on my iPad and my iPhone was complaining about: “Could Not Open the Page, Too Many Redirects”.

After 1 minute digging the problem on wordpress.org I found the fix at this thread:

I was still able to access the admin back-end fortunately, just in time to apply this nice plug-in that fix the problem:

Permalink Fix & Disable Canonical Redirects Pack

Apparently this problem is limited to WordPress residing on Windows based hosting. Guess what my hosting is then 😉
