Description of problem:
http://gluster.org/download/ redirects to https://www.gluster.org/download-server-is-down-building-a-replacement/
We probably don't need to have this anymore. Pretty sure this is over on the redirect side and not the WP side.
I beg to differ:
$ curl -v https://www.gluster.org/download/

That's www.gluster.org, on 184.108.40.206 (GCE IP) who do a 302 redirect using nginx, so that's wpengine side.
$ host gluster.wpengine.com
gluster.wpengine.com has address 220.127.116.11
I suspect that's a prefix matching plugin or something, since https://www.gluster.org/downlo also redirect to the wrong page.
So I started to look for the plugins installed, and out of the 7 there, none did look like a culprit.
So after asking to a friend serving as a teddy bear, he pointed me on https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/92103/disable-wordpress-url-auto-complete
There is a plugin for that:
Resolved by making a /download page that can redirect as needed back to /install.
Thanks for the hunting!
