I have a fresh install of v184.108.40.206 on a staging server. I have tried everything .. 0644 & 0755 js/index.php .. ALL files & subfolders in js to 0755 .. nothing seems to work. My categories show but the dropdown does not work. Admin area is fine though. Everything seems to be working fine on the local server though. Right now, js folder has the following file permissions
js - 0755
js/index/php - 0644
ALL other files & subfolders in js - 0755
I have tried reindexing after changing the file permissions but it does not help. Cache is already disabled. Have even tried creating a new root category & moving all the categories to the new root category & then assigning the new root category using System -> Manage Stores -> Main Website Store, as suggesting on another thread but it does not work either.
I am really lost here & could use some help. Thank you.
