I changed my permalink structure at the end of last year and was using a plugin to perform the redirection. All was good, even after the migration.

Until last night.

For some reason (seemingly no reason) the site decided that any 301 attempt from the old permalink structure would result in a redirect loop, using 100% server resources and slowing the site to a crawl.

I removed the plugin and tried another - same problem.

Next, I tried the following redirect in .htaccess with no luck:

RedirectMatch 301 ^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$ https://colinwalker.blog/$4

I'm at a loss for what's causing it so any suggestions would be extremely welcome.
