my blog has been working fine for over a year now but now ive put the server behind a reverse proxy it gets stuck in an infinate loop.

Other websites work fine with this new proxy, i can still login etc... so its not a cookie problem.

Ive tried it on another machine and it has the same problem.

this is my squid.conf
