Set your homepage to the render homepage url for your front-end app

Hi, new student here. I was trying to deploy the front-end part of my create-react-app with Render. I followed the guidlines and ran the deploy, but I was just getting a blank page and an error code saying:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()

Refused to execute script from ‘’ because its MIME type (‘text/plain’) is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.

Manifest: Line: 1, column: 1, Syntax error.

It turned out that all it was was my package.json “homepage” value wasn’t set to the url given to me by Render once I had it built. Maybe this is just my noob mistake, but I couldn’t find anything online that helped me out, and I would think it would be a common issue.

Is there somewhere on the Render website where this issue is addressed?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for sharing information that helped your application!
