Having trouble getting past 404 errors with css and js.


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<page layout="1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <css src="Vendor_Module::css/custom.css" />
        <script src="Vendor_Module::js/custom.js"/>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Display" name="Display" template="Vendor_Module::index.phtml" />

Files are located here


static deploy doesn't seem to do the trick nor does manually clearing the cache

  • /Vendor/Module/etc is always for configuration and di files. Oct 2, 2017 at 5:27

You have to keep file inside view folder instead of etc folder. New path will be,


Run upgrade and deploy command.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
rm -rf pub/static/frontend/* pub/static/adminhtml/* var/cache/ var/generation/ var/page_cache/ var/view_preprocessed/ var/composer_home
php -dmemory_limit=6G bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
chmod -Rf 777 pub/ var/

Thank you.
