Joomla infinite loop error

Post by RisenAngel » Tue May 17, 2011 8:16 pm

Has anyone else encountered this error after doing a fresh installation of joomla?
The installation installed just fine but I get a blank white screen with the following error message.

Infinite loop error detected in JError.

It does this on the root folder and the admin login page. I'm a bit confused. Drupal did it too until I uninstalled and re-installed the URL rewrite module.

I ran a few test Joomla installs but wasn't been able to reproduce this.

I recommend opening a ticket and providing login to an affected account so we can troubleshoot further.

Just as a side note for you gentlemen, I have had no issues with Joomla since install about three weeks back. It seems that this issue is hopefully not universal...

If this is the same issue I had, here's the fix:
Did clean install, everything nice and beautiful...
THEN, ran security script, which (quite wisely) updates the root password in mysql.
It DOES NOT, however, update the password in configuration.php.
Edit that file, look for the database connect username and PW lines. PW line will show ::
Add the password you just created with the security script between the colons, and....
All should be nice and beautiful again.
If this is NOT the same issue you are having, sorry, tried....
