MIME type (‘text/html’) is not a supported stylesheet MIME type

I have tried almost every solution for the problem which includes. giving type for <link rel="stylesheet" href="./style.css" /> use of app.use(express.static('public')) and many more but it seems I am not able to find a solution for this.

index.js :

import React from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';
import { Provider } from 'react-redux'
import "./assets/styles/app.less";
import 'bootstrap/dist/js/bootstrap.js';
import App from './components/base/App';
import store from './store'

const provider =
  <Provider store={store}>
    <App />
  </Provider>

render(provider, document.getElementById('my-app'))

index.html :

    "build": "cross-env NODE_ENV=production webpack --config webpack.config.js"
  },

npm strat is working fine the application is working fine, but when i do npm run build it gives me the error:

**Refused to apply style from 'http://localhost:9000/style.css' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not a supported stylesheet MIME type, and strict MIME checking is enabled.**

**Refused to execute script from 'http://localhost:9000/bundle.js' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.**

In the network part I got the following:

Ok response for : http://localhost:9000/bundle.js

cancled for : http://localhost:9000/style.css

Help !!

Answer

I’m adding a second answer because I think there could be a different issue. I think the MIME Type error could be due to the css path not being correct. I think it is trying to serve up an error instead of the css file which is not matching the MIME type. Try removing the following line from your HTML Template and allowing the HtmlWebPackPlugin to inject it automatically.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="./style.css" />

Below is my own webpack.config and index.html template which I hope will help.

webpack.config
