It’s a good Magento feature that sometimes disturbed Magento developers. If you get a 404 error or cache clean does not work, etc.
I want to show you all way that we can remove the version number from Magento URL.
remove Magento version number by PHPMyAdmin
open the phpmyadmin and select you Magento database.
find path with
dev/static/sign value. you can use PHPMyAdmin search. after finding set 0 to value. if you could not find it you can insert a new record by below SQL command
insert into core_config_data (config_id, scope, scope_id, path, value) values (null, 'default', 0, 'dev/static/sign', 0);
remove Magento version number by Magento admin
For this solution, you need to login into the Magento admin panel. I assume that you know how you can do that. after login, you should follow this path
Stores > Configuration > Advanced > Developer > Sign Static Files
If you could not find the developer tab, it’s because you are in production mode. you can change get you mode by this command
go to magento root by ssh
php bin/magento deploy:mode:show
Also, you can change it to developer mode by
php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer
Now, you can follow the path and change the version to no. after that. You need to clean the cache. and sometimes you should deploy static files
