Login page redirect


#1

Sigh! I can’t remember how to fix this. Just set up a copy of production site on a new AWS server.
http://54.81.83.101/digital/admin/users/login

Tried in all 3 browsers, same issue. Allow Override All and Options All are set in httpd.conf. The /var/log/errors.log doesn’t yield any helpful information. Main site works fine, browsing items, searching, etc. so it’s not a rewrite issue.

ERROR IN FIREFOX (again, tried in Chrome, FF, and Safari, same error):
The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

#2

It’s just constantly issuing redirects to the login page itself.

Do you have any “interesting” or customized modules related to login?


#3

Don’t think so, and it works fine on production! But I’ve come across this issue before when setting up clone/test Omeka installs.

Here’s my plugins directory:
[ec2-user@ip-172-31-31-221 plugins]$ ls -1
AdminImages
CleanUrl
DateSearch
DefaultSearchOptions
DefaultSort
EmbedCodes
ExhibitBuilder
HideElements
HistoryLog
Reference
SearchByMetadata
SimplePages

Is there a way to just load the correct .php file directly without it trying to do a redirect?


#5

I did a test blank install of Omeka 2.6.1 and could access the /admin (after doing some more corrections for the odd AWS EC2 “Amazon Linux” instance and issues with mod_rewrite).

But as soon as I loaded the production database to the new instance, I get the same error.

What could be in the database that would be causing an infinite loop on login page routing request? I haven’t even installed any of the plugins yet in the new instance, although obviously there are some references to them in the db. But no code!


#6

It looks like your original site has a custom admin theme… if that’s missing or if it contains some code that might redirect that could do it.


#7

Yikes that’s it! I just hopped into omeka_options and saw id=14, admin_theme.

So that’s a very confusing error that “presents” relative to the fix. Any chance there could be some error catch inserted into next version? Where would/should I request that?
