Hi
Change file permission of “var” directory to 777

I had to change the “cache” folder as well since I didn’t do this recursive.

Then all things work ok.

The reasons for bad permissions on the var/cache/ folder giving you Mage’s magically, eternally redirecting Magento are explained over here.

If Magento cannot write to var/cache/ and var/tmp/, it then proceeds to write to the system /tmp folder (See image attachments on post in above link showing this in action). Once config is cached in the system tmp folder, you will never get the site to work until you fix things.
