    This error generally occurs due to a misconfiguration.Sometime the external sources like plugins or themes that are incompatible with the system as a result, you may get an error that says there are too many redirects. This means your site is not going to function properly.Due to a misconfiguration of plugins OR redirection tools, your site may end up redirecting users to a URL that is actually redirecting them back to the referring URL and that’s why your browser will be trapped between two pages and hence you get the error.

    How to resolve Too Many Redirects?
    {1}Using Admin Area:
    The most common misconfiguration that we have come across repeatedly is when a user has incorrect URL in WordPress Address URL or Site Address URL settings.To fix this, you need to change your WordPress Address and Site Address. Go to Settings » General, change your WordPress and Site Address. If you have your address with www prefix, then change it to non-www URL, and if you have it with non-www URL then add the www prefix.Make sure that you don’t forget to add a trailing slash at the end of the URL.

    {2}Using FTP OR Cpanel:
    If you don’t have the access to WordPress Admin,then you can still update these settings by defining them in wp-config.php file.Just Connect to your website using an FTP client and you will get wp-config.php file in root directory. First download the file to your remote PC and edit this file using a text editor.Finally upload the file to server using FTP.

    
    define('WP_HOME','http://avianceschool.com');
    
    define('WP_SITEURL','http://avianceschool.com');
    
    

    Now try to access your WordPress site. If you still can not access your site, then please try to add your domain with www prefix.

    {3}Plugin uninstall:
    If you’re getting the error after installing a new plugin into your system then you need to find and deactivate the plugin.Kindly follow the steps below:

    Step 1: Go to the “Plugins” area of your WordPress dashboard.
    Step 2: find the plugin name and click to “Deactivate”.
    Step 3: Click the “Delete” link that becomes available if you’re sure this plugin is not working for you after deactivating it.
