I'm migrating a website from Magento 126.96.36.199 to 2.2, I've only migrated data, that's all I need, the migration completed sucessfully, all the products, customers, orders, categories are there, all pages of the admin section are working fine but the Category one, it has a redirect loop apparently.
I've looked into
core_config_data both base url are pointing to http://127.0.0.1/magento/ and web/secure/use_in_adminhtml is set to 0.
Already cleaned the cache and reindexed everything.
This answer said to check
core_config_data didn't have this path, so I tried adding it, but no joy.
I've migrated two different shops from 188.8.131.52 to 2.2 and had the exact same problem.
