New Posts on Github Pages With Octopress Not Showing on Your Blog

So today I had the issue where new posts that was generated and pushed to github, not being displayed on my blog.

I was able to see the markdown pages on my github respository, but via the blog itself, getting 404’s.

The Issue:

When I did a rake generate I found the following error:

1
jekyll 2.5.3 | Error: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII

Resolving the Issue:

After running the following, I was able to get rid of the error, and posts showing again:

1
2
$ export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
$ export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
