Redirect Loop Installing WordPress on a Subdomain

Typically installing WordPress on a subdomain is no big deal. It’s a 10 minute process at most. However, today I needed to install it for a client’s test site and it would throw a Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS) — “This webpage has a redirect loop” or “The page isn’t redirecting properly” as soon as I pressed the “Install” button.

406 Error Fix

Are you or others receiving a 406 error when visiting your site? Most likely it is caused by mod_security, which acts as a firewall to protect web application attacks.

Redirect Only Specific Files from HTTP to HTTPS

I had a hard time finding a solution to redirect only certain files from HTTP to the secure HTTPS. I found all kinds of ways to redirect the entire site to HTTPS but none for specific pages only. After a few hours tinkering I found a solution using the following code in a .htaccess file:

Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^example.com [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

rewritecond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
rewriterule ^filename.php(.*)$ https://www.example.com/filename.php$1 [r=301]

The first part of the code redirects example.com to www.example.com as noted in an earlier post, “301” Redirects for SEO. The second part then redirects a specific file (filename.php) from http to https. Thus the individual file “filename.php” can only be accesses using a SSL connection.
