RE: Redirect Loop
Thanks for the reply. I hope I can eliminate at few options and give some more clues as to where the problem lies.
I'm on a Unix server, I dont think there is any problem there. I have another site that uses the original SEO URL and works fine.
I have got the redirect index.php to root domain turned off in admin.
I have tried all the url path admin settings with the same result. path_rewrite is my priority.
If I Enable SEO URLs 5, it will generate a nice url but I get the redirect loop message. If I disable the module and then refresh the product_info page it will use the .htaccess rule
RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-p-([0-9]+).html$ product_info.php [NC,L,QSA]
to display the product_info page but goes to "no product found"
When I use a modified rule
RewriteRule ^([a-z0-9/-]+)-p-([0-9]+).html$ product_info.php?products_id=$2 [NC,L,QSA]
It will display the product_info page properly, but when I enable the module it has the redirect loop error again.
So the .htaccess redirect works but not when the module is enabled.
I think the problem is separate to the .htaccess settings. Even when I strip all the rewrites from .htaccess I get the same redirect loop error.
If there is a problem in my includes/configure.php settings I can't see it, but am happy to show them to you.
Another clue may be when I first did the install the cache database table did not install and I had to run SQL query manually to insert the usu_cache table. I have tried turning the enable cache setting off in admin. Also when I try Reset USU5 Cache I get an error (but this might just be because the table is already empty).
I don't know if I have narrowed it down at all...
Thanks for your time. Steve
