The "too many redirects" error typically occurs when there is a redirect loop on a website. This happens when a redirect points to itself or when there is a series of redirects that eventually lead back to the original URL. Redirect loops can be caused by a number of things, including misconfigured URL rewrites, incorrect redirects, and cyclical proxy configurations.
