'This web page has a redirect loop' on localhost

Postby sai » 20. September 2015 11:53

Hi,
I installed xampp-win32-5.6.12-0-VC11-installer. I started Apache and MySQL from the XAMPP control panel.
When I open the browser and typed 'localhost', it went to the localhost/dashboard page. So in the C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php file I made the following change:

//header('Location: '.$uri.'/dashboard/');
header('Location: '.$uri);

Now when I type localhost in the url, I get 'This web page has a redirect loop' ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS.
Details:
The web page at http://localhost/ has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

I deleted the cookies but I keep getting the same error.
What is the solution?

Thanks.

I want to get the localhost started. Normally it should take to http://localhost/xampp/splash.php, right?
After getting the localhost started I want to install drupal and work on it.

Wrong. The latest XAMPP versions doesn't contain the old orange administration page any more.
The dashboard is the new default. You can start using XAMPP without any changes to this.
