Restoring site's backup, results in not loading sites asset e.g. style.css and .js files. I checked the site and notice the link to theme asset:


as you can see, the %20 after the domain is cause the problem. The link above generated from bottom code in functions.php:

 wp_enqueue_style( 'theme-style', get_stylesheet_uri() );

I checked Site URL in wp settings and it's Ok, also links in functions.php are Ok. So where should I go from here ? Where that extra %20 came from ?

    Note that %20 is the URL-encoding of a space, so make sure that there is no trailing whitespace in the URL too.

Check your wordpress db table wp_options and from there check option name : siteUrl and home url and change %20 from there.
