When you enable Basic SSL mode and configure your WordPress site for SSL/HTTPS (force https traffic only or redirect http traffic to https), the infinite redirect loop error may happen.
To fix the error, please install any WordPress plugin that fixes all your websites' HTTP contents to HTTPS. One of the example plugins is SSL Insecure Content Fixer https://wordpress.org/plugins/ssl-insecure-content-fixer/.
Then, visit https://wordpress.org/plugins/cloudbric-basic-ssl/ and install Cloudbric Basic SSL plugin to prevent the infinite redirect loop (when Cloudbric Basic SSL mode is enabled for your website). Upload plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/cloudbric-basic-ssl/ directory OR install the plugin through WordPress plugins directly. Then, activate it.
Cloudbric Basic SSL plugin is free to all WordPress users, and this is only for those who added their websites to Cloudbric. There are two key features.
- Prevent redirect loop error
- Track visitor's original IP: usually, a WordPress based website cannot track visitor's IP address when a firewall is placed in front of your web server, but this plugin will allow you to track visitor's original IP address
