I was changing my theme and I uploaded some custom JS files to the theme’s ZIP. Under the
/assets/js folder there was already a file called
script.js plus the other ones that I’d added.
When I loaded up my blog, the Chrome console shows error alerts for all of the files that I had uploaded with
GET http://xiao.io/assets/js/xxx.js/ net::ERR_ABORTED. So I decided to test the URL with the
script.js file that was there before I uploaded the others.
http://xiao.io/assets/js/script.js worked, while all the other file names just resulted in 404 not found.
Then I decided to check if the directory was correct, so I went to my VPS’ terminal, went to the folder where I uploaded the JS files and renamed the
script.js file. Now when I tried going to
http://xiao.io/assets/js/script.js it stopped working. So I knew the directory was correct.
But then the strange thing happened, when I renamed the file back to
script.js, the browser couldn’t find it anymore.
http://xiao.io/assets/js/script.js raised the 404 not found error just like all the other files I uploaded. I thought it might have been a permission problem, but when I switched the theme back to what I used before, those custom JS scripts that worked before stopped working now. They now raise the same
GET http://xiao.io/assets/js/xxx.js/ net::ERR_ABORTED message.
I tried restarting ghost and restarting the VPS with no luck.
