page not redirecting properly - b2evo version 6.8.8

I have installed 6.8.8 freshly under /b2evo/ in our webserver . The install went through fine, but when I tried to access "Blog A", "Blog B" or any other collection, I get this error "The page isn’t redirecting properly" from the browser.

I went through existing help on this & edited php.ini to include cgi.fix_pathinfo=1 . Also edited admin.php to change line "if( ! empty( $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] ) && $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] != $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ) // the "!= PHP_SELF" check seems needed by IIS.."

and tried many other things. To no avail. The "page not redirecting properly" error continues, even after clearing the browser cache, cookies.

Tried it with 6.9.1 - same problem!

There is no .htaccess file in the dir or the root dir.

Much appreciate your help on this vexing issue.

Are you using IIS / Windows?

This is not an officially supported platform. There may be many things that won't work.

Yes, I am using IIS on Windows 10.

Figured it out - there is a web.config tuned for laravel causing invalid redirects. Deleted it and b2evo is working fine.
