Too many redirects ONLY within IOS ?!

Post by aleangelico » Wed Dec 14, 2016 9:26 pm


This site works fine everywhere except in IOS.

It works in Windows with Firefox, Chrome or IE.
It works in OSX with Safari or Chrome
It works in android phones
But when I try to open the site in an iPad or an IPhone with Chrome or Safari I get a TOO MANY REDIRECTS error.

I tried enabling and disabling the friendly urls,
the site is running under IIS so I tried several configurations with web.config
I cleaned joomla's cache and redirects.
I cleaned the browsers cache and cookies.
I updated everything to the last version (joomla 3.6.5)
but the problem continues.

How can I troubleshoot this problem? any ideas?

Similarly to @kulot: I looked at the website from an iPad and had no issues with it. I suspect the problem is localised to the iPad/iPhone used by @aleangelico. Nice website, by the way :)

Just for future reference, if anyone has this issue.

A lot of browsers cache re-directs, so once the problem starts and even if you fixed it. They browser will still do the redirect because of the cache.

So you have to clear the cache out first, before you test again.
