If you are experiencing a 404 error when trying to load the jQuery library after migrating a WordPress site, there are a few possible causes and solutions:

Incorrect file path:

Make sure that the file path for the jQuery library is correct. If you moved the site to a new location, the file path may have changed. Check the source code of your page and verify that the path to the jQuery library is correct.

Plugin conflict:

It’s possible that a plugin on your site is causing a conflict that’s preventing jQuery from loading. Try deactivating all plugins and then reactivating them one at a time until you identify the one causing the conflict.

Corrupted files:

It’s possible that the jQuery files themselves were corrupted during the migration process. Try downloading a fresh copy of the jQuery library from the official website and replacing the old files on your server with the new ones.


Make sure that the file permissions for the jQuery library are set correctly. If the permissions are set too restrictively, it could prevent the server from accessing the file. Try setting the permissions to 644.


If your site is using a CDN to deliver jQuery, make sure that the CDN is configured correctly and that the URL for the CDN is correct.

If none of these solutions work, you may need to consult with a developer or your hosting provider for additional assistance.
