This list is not a support list.

You have a problem with Redirects.  Do you have any redirection
plugins installed?  Have you tried looking through the source of your
plugins to find mentions of the wp_redirection_items and
wp_redirection_modules tables (these are not core tables)?

My guess is that this is a problem with Urban Giraffe's Redirection
plugin http://urbangiraffe.com/plugins/redirection/  Do you have that
plugin installed? If you disable the plugin, does the problem go away
(always a good debugging step).

Here's a link which addresses what sounds like your problem.


If it is this plugin that's causing the problem, I suggest you move
your discussion to those support forums as the people there will be
able to help you better.  If they can fix your problem, please also
post a note on your WordPress.org forums thread so that people
searching that site can get the answer they need.

Please also direct future support inquiries to the proper channels.
