Sometimes plugins also can cause Login Page Redirect error due to the conflict between two plugins. Page redirecting error can be resolved by deactivating the plugins. To deactivate your plugins, connect to FTP client and rename the folder plugins to plugins_backup. You can find the plugins folder in the wp-content folder. If you can’t access to your WP admin then try to deactivate the plugin via cPanel. In cPanel, go to phpMyAdmin option and select the database and goto wp-options table. Click on active_plugins and click the edit link next to it. On the editing screen, you need to change the value to a:0:{}| and click Go button. This will help you to deactivate all plugins.

Set Default theme:

In some of the cases, WordPress themes can also cause this Login Page Redirect error. If a theme is upgraded to new version, it will be reflecting in the page redirection issue. You can find out whether the issue is caused due to the themes, by setting default theme to the website. To deactivate your theme, go to wp-content folder. Then click on themes folder and rename your current theme directory to anything. It will automatically fall back to default theme after renaming the themes folder. Now try to log in again. If the login was successfully completed, it means you can confirm that the issue was made by the themes.

Delete .htaccess file:

Corrupted .htacces file can also cause this error. So delete the .htaccess file from your directory and try again. Before deleting the .htaccess file, connect to FTP client and take a backup of your .htaccess file in your computer.
