Laravel Mix problem - Can not combine Scripts & Styles

Posted 1 week ago by Scotalia

TLDR: I am trying to combine my Scripts and Styles using Mix. However i keep running into an error when I 'npm run dev' and 'npm run prod' .

The error:

SyntaxError: missing ) after argument list
    at new Script (vm.js:83:7)

I have a LARGE number of scripts (18) and stylesheets (8) and am bogging my new site down with HTTP requests. I'm running CentOS and can not use HTTP/2 without compiling latest apache from source which i don't want to do due to inexperience. I have tried using 'combine(0' instead of 'scripts()'. I have tried the following from @JeffreyWay on one of Mix's github issues but it did not solve the issue:

npm cache clean --force

rm -rf node_modules package-lock.json

npm install

I have tried reducing the number of scripts and styles i am combining to 2, tried only combining scripts, only combining styles. I have reviewed the logs per the errors above, but nothing clearly explains to me what the actual error is nor how to resolve.

I am running CentOS 7, Apache 2.4.6, Laravel 6, 18.13, mix 6.14.4

Any thoughts as to what i could be doing wrong?
