Apache Configuration Question

Apache 2.4 - Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error

I'm running Apache 2.4 (64bit) and PHP 5.4.15 on windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and have noticed the following error in the Apache error log:

AH00124: Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace.


I have a multisite install of WordPress running and I think the error is coming from an error in the htaccess rewrites.

Looking at this post:
Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error.?

They suggest to replace this:

# BEGIN Wordpress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress


with this piece of code, courtesy of Scott Yang:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ /index.php/$1 [L,QSA]
</IfModule>


However, my WordPress htaccess looks a little different so I dont just want to replace my code just in case I inadvertently replace something that I need.

Here is my htaccess:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]
RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress


Can anyone suggest what I need to change?

Answer

You're getting into looping most likely due to these rules:

RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]

Just comment it out and try again in a new browser.
