CakePHP: JS and CSS files are not loading

When I faced this issue with one of my projects and searched over the internet, out of the suggested solutions, nothing worked. Anyhow, with some luck and R&D, I was able to fix this issue. Hence, sharing it with a larger group to help others who are or will face the same issue as mine. 

If apache is your web server and your CakePHP project is in /var/www/html/ folder then please make sure that AllowOverride All enabled for /var/www/html

To enable AllowOverride All for /var/www/html following is an example for /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf


<VirtualHost *:80>
        # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
        # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
        # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
        # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
        # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
        # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
        # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
        #ServerName www.example.com

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
        <Directory "/var/www/html">
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
            AllowOverride All
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        </Directory>


</VirtualHost>


Thanks!!! Enjoy Programming :)
