Redirection loop in Joomla 1.5.x (using sh404sef plugin)

If you recently tried moving the Joomla 1.5.x site from your old domain to a new one and while doing so, your website is stuck in a loop between your old and new domains, causing the index page to never load, this solution might help you.


One would get 'FLOOD' error message on the homepage page (new domain) and the page would never load. In such cases, check the configuration page of sh404sef at "[root]/administrator/components/com_sh404sef/config/config.sef.php" and replace the value:

$shForcedHomePage = "http://www.your-old-domain/index.php";

to something like:

$shForcedHomePage = "http://www.your-new-domain/index.php";


The looping should stop with this change.
