SOURCE: Major oil leak after oil change
Your filter was installed either without the rubber seal, or the seal wasn't lubed before installation and it slipped, causing an improper seal. You will have to drain the oil again, remove the filter, and make sure it is reinstalled with a proper seal.

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached.

Take the oil filter off. check to make sure you don't have 2 gaskets on there. Sometimes the old oil filter gasket sticks. This will cause a leak no matter how hard you tighten. When you remove the filter and hove only one rubber gasket, check it to make sure it was not pinched or scarred. then check the block for anything that might make a gap, or that the metal is not scarred or a crack. I would use a new filter to go back( that's just me). hope this helps
