Redirect error after upgrading to 2.3.1

After upgrading to 2.3.1 it gives me “too many redirect errors” on both Firefox (OS X and Windows) and Safari (OS X). Reverting back to 2.3.0 fixes the problem. PHP is 5.6.

Any idea what may be going on?

Any chance I can have a look at your installation:

I figured it out, it was caused by the following:

redirectMatch 301 ^(.*).html $1

which was set so that, are redirected to (the .html were from an old design, but were still indexed in some search engines).

However, I can’t fix it now, the suggestions that I found here:

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} .html
RewriteRule ^(.*).html$ $1 [R=301,L]

do not work, results in 404 error. Any idea how to fix this?

I once had the same problem and finally came up with this in my .htaccess right after the RewriteBase:

# reroute old URLs to new URLs
RewriteRule ^index.html$ / [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)\.html$ /$1/ [R=301,L]
