I am still seeing a messy frontend on my Magento 2 after my install was complete. I don't know if this is a css problem. I fixed the symlinks problem and now I am able to log in to the admin site. I have done the redeploy command and reindexed the site. Still, the site does not display correctly. It opens with a bullet-point menu of the site. What should be done?


When you're editing stuff, just set the files to 777 :

find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

find . -type f -exec chmod 777 {} \;

When you're done, set them back to recommended values :

find . -type f -exec chmod 400 {} \;find . -type d -exec chmod 500 {} \;

find var/ -type f -exec chmod 600 {} \;

find media/ -type f -exec chmod 600 {} \;

find var/ -type d -exec chmod 700 {} \;

find media/ -type d -exec chmod 700 {} \;

  • there is no need to set chmod 777, just make sure correct user runs php... – MagenX Jun 22 '16 at 15:41
