Cannot install Vanilla 2.3

I cannot install Vanilla 2.3. I've tried via the Softalucous panel on my webhost with no such luck and I tried do download and install it manually. All I get to is a page name where it says there are too many redirections. I tried to search the forum but don't understand SQUAT about the info I've found in similar topics.

I never had problems before on previous versions I've tested out using the quick install on my webhost and neither when doing a manual install long time ago.

Please help

    You need to replace the htaccess file with the one that comes with Vanilla 2.2 some people reported the one that comes with 2.3 is buggy...

    See if that works for you
