      Description

      I was working on MDL-54901, when I created:

      https://docs.moodle.org/32/en/index.php?title=admin/environment/custom_check/check_ssl_wwwroot&action=history

      Initially I created it as a redirect to:

      https://docs.moodle.org/32/en/index.php?title=HTTPS&redirect=no

      because I thought that it maybe the best page to point to, no matter it's, right now, another redirect. And I was hopping the 2 redirects to happen in a row. But no, they are not chained and you must manually click to go to the final page.

      I've found other links that are already working that way, for example this:

      http://docs.moodle.org/32/en/admin/environment/custom_check/unoconv%20version%20not%20supported

      is linked from the env page in Moodle and it leads to an "intermediate" page, with not more redirects being followed.

      I was guessing if, maybe, if could have sense to enable multiple redirects to work, say 2 or 3, so those existing (and normal) redirects can simply happen.

      If so, it seems that this setting provides exactly that functionality:

      For your entire consideration, ciao

      Side noted: That page commented above (check_ssl_wwwroot), can be safely deleted once you're done with this. I'm using another custom name for the check, so that page is not used anymore, but by this issue.
