Strange redirection when hitting an edit-tags.php based page

I’m having an issue in WordPress backend: when I try to access to the menu posts->category edit page or, post->tag edit page or a post->custom_tax edit page, I ‘m always redirected to a page in frontend.
This only happens when hitting edit-tags.php (ie. or ). The theme is a custom one, made by myself.

This is, in order, what I’ve done so far:

  • disabled all plugins
  • disabled all plugins and switch to any of the default themes
  • removed old .htaccess
  • delete all caches from w3 total cache and disabled it
  • removed let’s encrypt certificate (I installed it 3/4 days ago) and removed auto redirect to https
  • scan files with WordFence

Nothing works. I tried also googling for similar issues, but I found nothing helpful (something about some changes to .htaccess, tried out but nothing. Maybe I’m searching for the wrong issue?)

Does anyone have had a similar issue?
Thank you very much for your help
