Question Submission Template

A clear, detailed explanation of the issue and a specific question for the instructor.

  • Example: My CSS is not loading in production. When I spin up the server in a production environment and open the inspection tools, I see that the CSS file is there but the changes are not applied. How can I include my CSS changes in production?

What five key terms/queries have you used in Google?

  • Example of one of the queries: CSS not loading in Rails 5.2 production

  • Example of one link & summary: This link talks about running a local production environment and ensuring that config.public_file_server.enabled = true inside production.rb is set. This is done in my application and did not solve my issue.

  • Example: I followed the instructions posted here to run my production environment:
    Add gem 'rails_12factor' to your Gemfile. This will add error logging and the ability for your app to serve static assets.
    Run RAILS_ENV=production rake db:create db:migrate db:seed
    Run rake secret and copy the output
    From the command line: export SECRET_KEY_BASE=output-of-rake-secret
    To precompile your assets, run rake assets:precompile. This will create a folder public/assets that contains all of your assets.
    Run RAILS_ENV=production rails s and you should see your app.

    I have tried clobbering my assets and running the precompile command again.
