OpenX - too many redirects

apps

#1

I’ve got a fairly new one-click install of OpenX setup. In both Safari 5.0.5 and Firefox 5.0.1 I’m running into errors just trying to get it to load a page.

Safari says Too many redirects occurred trying to open “[site]”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.

Firefox says The page isn’t redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

Anyone else having this issue? Any idea how to fix it?

I just came across the same issue.
The only solution is to use 2 different browsers for looking/testing your ad on your website and navigating in the web console.
If the delivery server and web admin console has the same ip/domain, both will write a cookie named OAID and thus messing everything up.
If you use e.g Safari to navigate in the console and Firefox to check the ads on your website then things should work without any problem.
Another solution is to remove your cookies for the openx server domain every
time you run into this problem.

Good luck.

I’ve tried to clean up all relevant cookies and it worked for me with Firefox :slight_smile:
