    Immediately after creating a new Sitefinity 4.1 project using the project manager and clicking the Browse button, the web browsers ends up in an infinite redirect loop.

    Here is the error page from Chrome:

    This webpage has a redirect loop

    The webpage at http://localhost:37324/Sitefinity-4.1/Sitefinity/Startup has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

    Here are some suggestions:

    Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

    Hello Michiel,

    Try removing the dash and dot from the project name. Create a new project without symbols in the name. There are issues when you use dots. We have to add validation to the name field of the Project Manager.

    Kind regards,

    Ok, wil try that, thanks!

    I noticed that the database name shouldn't have a dash either, as the ORM will not escape it (for example when creating a new database).

    I think there should not be an issue instead there being a validator. After all, it's a valid URL so Sitefinity (being a web content management system) should 'just work'

    Thanks for considering!
