My server has just been updated and now on my site the file paths for css, js and everything is wrong: the path weirdly includes the document root, so the path looks like:


First thing I checked was the core table and can confirm the core table looks correct:

the core table

The secure url and unsecure url are correctly set as:

I am lost as to why this is happening. I am thinking it could be a Selinux issue:

ls -Z: Shows, for example unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 var system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 favicon.ico

UPDATE: This is a SElinux issue with permissions. I have managed to overcome this for now by setting the SElinux to permissive mode.

I guess I could run:

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /var/www/html/magentofoldername/*

But, not this is the best thing. I was wondering if someone had a more educated idea of how to best approach this? like how would I correctly set the labels.


I've had this happen before if my base_url doesn't have a / at the end.

I've also seen it be an issue if there's an error with the cached data on merged JS/CSS. Try turning on/off merged JS/CSS, see if that helps...

  • it's an Selinux issue, as setting it in permissive mode has solved it. Need to figure out correct SElinux now for Magento – Vaishal Patel Sep 10 '19 at 8:29
