Please go easy on me if this is something easy to fix.... I am new to SilverStripe.

I am migrating a site from my test server to clients server and am having some issues.

After uploading all files, setting up DB ect when I go to the root directory I get a Server Error. In checking the logs it says:

mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary.

If I type in index.php the site will load with no problems....

Any help greatly appreciated.

All fixed. After hours of struggling all I needed to do was add RewriteBase / to the .htaccess file.
