CMS never finishes loading. It hangs on the "Loading..." overlay. Upon a closer look, I noticed my browser error log saying "Can't find variable: jQuery". I then realized the CMS isn't loading half the javascript it should be. If it set "Director::set_environment_type('dev');", then everything loads fine. Remove it and it breaks.

I've been working on this for 4hrs. If anyone can point me in the right direct, I would really appreciate it.

Its probably to do with the concatenation of files in live mode. Try adding this to your _config.php file.

Thanks. That is a better solution than what I ended up doing.... commenting out all the "combined_files" code in LeftAndMain.php :)

FYI I just had the same issue. Couldn't get into admin when not in dev mode. Willr's addition to _config.php did the trick.

@both of you - what modules did you have (if any). What I suspect is that you upgraded to 2.4 and it used older 2.3 javascript files. Or it could be a module (userforms) which is affecting it.
