I installed Magento in XAMPP, and the installation is fully complete. However, when I go to Fontend and Backend, the loading is very long, also all the thumbnails crash. I tried install again, but the same problem is still here.

I find out a error on console, it seems no any file in the directory: enter image description here

Here is my backend, all the thumbnail crash and the loading is unstopptable. enter image description here

How can I solve the infinitely-loading and the thumbnail problem?

  • Did you run static deploy command? Dec 15 '16 at 5:41
  • No... I am trying now.. Dec 15 '16 at 6:02

run command ./bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy


php -f magento setup:static-content:deploy

from console


When you installed magento 2 the admin links wont work. In order to make the links to work. Goto magento root folder app/etc/di.xml then comment this line

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

and paste this code

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

save and check links will work. Also do reindex using

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

To display thumbnails do static content deployment using

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
