I'm new to Magento, after installation of Magento 2 community edition.I am not able to access the admin panel. I am getting below error.

This web page has a redirect loop


Please help me to resolve the issue. Advance thanks to all.


In my case, I was importing an already existing Magento 2 database. The reason I was getting the error was because of the cookie domain in the database. Go to your database and look in the table core_config_data. You should see a path called web/cookie/cookie_domain. Make sure the domain matches the one you installed Magento 2 on. Ex: If you installed Magento 2 on<magento-root> the entry in web/cookie/cookie_domain should be

I had same problem manipulating databases, this answer resolved my problem ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS :

To correct this, please try to set Use Secure URLs in Admin to true, in System -> Config -> General -> Web.

Or with database access, change following record value to 1 :

SELECT * FROM core_config_data where path like '%web/secure/use_in_adminhtml%';

I refer to your magento store domain as in this post. If its or or whatever, substitute accordingly.

I just ran into this issue and here are the specifics. Magento 2 2.2.2 install. I had configured the secure base url's to initially and as I was getting my letsencrypt ssl cert configured on my server, I thoughtlessly enabled the option to redirect all http traffic to https.

This wouldn't be an issue normally, but Magento can be a bit temperamental. I visited my storefront and my SSL is working correctly, but as I attempted to access admin, I received the "ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS" notice and a failed page load.

I see several ways to fix this issue but the one that worked for me first attempt was this.

  1. SSH into server.
  2. cd to your magento install dir.
  3. run the following command:
    • php bin/magento config:show

view the output and look for web/secure/base_url, web/secure/base_link_url & web/secure/use_in_adminhtml.

These values should be configured with for the url options and web/secure/use_in_adminhtml = 1.

If they are not, you can run the following commands from your magento install directory to update your configuration.

  1. php bin/magento config:sensitive:set web/secure/base_url
  2. php bin/magento config:sensitive:set web/secure/base_link_url
  3. php bin/magento config:set web/secure/use_in_adminhtml 1
  4. php bin/magento cache:clean

After that, visit your admin page, clear your browser cache, reload, and you should now have your access back! with SSL support.

First step I would take after that is to log back into the admin portal and verify your configuration options to ensure you arent going to run into any other unexpected problems.

I hope this help!
