DigitalOcean Rails 4 Site not loading some images

I’m deploying a site using capistrano to DigitalOcean, and I’m stuck with a problem where some images don’t display. I say some, because some do display properly (with the right assets/... URL) while some images in the same div don’t display (instead trying to access some images/... path).

The weird part is these images are all in the same folder (assets/images), used in the same each loop, all using the <%= image_tag %> tag. During deployment, rake assets:precompile always succeeds and there’s no visible error.

And lastly, here’s a part of my production.rb file:

 config.serve_static_assets = false
  config.assets.compile = true
  config.assets.digest = true
  config.assets.version = '1.0'

If you need any other code snippets, let me know and I’ll provide them asap.

As you’ve already guessed, this sounds like an asset pipeline issue.

  1. Are you sure you’re correctly uploading the latest code to DO? Check your views on your server to make sure that they match what you see locally.

  2. Are the images that are missed located in your assets, like JS or CSS files? They may not be processing as you expect.
