Redirect Loop installing wordpress 2.7.1

I've installed wordpress a gazillion times and for some reason I'm getting a redirect loop problem with a new install of the latest version. I changed the wp-config.php and the tables are all populated in mysql, I can even login to but for some reason will never load.

There's no .htaccess, and yet when I upload an index.html then the site works perfectly. Any ideas?

    You mean you was installing on the same server & directory? If that's the case it might be WP bug, so I would rollback to prev version.

    Othervice, I would check directory owners & permissions. That might be the cause why it cannot create .htaccess.

    I had the same problem before. The problem seems to stem from the general options blog URL and WordPress URL. This can be found in

    The WordPress URL and blog URL should be the same or delete the blog URL and keep the WordPress URL intact.
