After installing Magento 2.0.4 version, it logged in properly but products, system and other options on dashboard are not accessible. When I click on product it is not responding, same with other. I am unable to find any solution for it.

Can anyone guide me on this please?

Go to your magento root /app/etc/di.xml line number 574 approximately and change the code

        <item name="view_preprocessed" xsi:type="object">Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink</item>


<item name="view_preprocessed" xsi:type="object">Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy</item>

Remove cache , try it again.

Hope it helps.

Run the following in the command prompt:

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

It will load necessary css and images. Then try logging into admin. It works.

Hope this helps

  • Hi, i am using live server

  • I think you can run it in live server if you have the access. It will not create any impact on magento installation. If you don't have the access you can ask your network or system administrator to run the command. Commented Apr 25, 2016 at 12:19
  • To run the above command you need to have shell access. Goto Magento installation directory (say /var/www/html/magento , for example), then run the command. <magento-installation-dir>~ php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy Commented Apr 25, 2016 at 12:32
