There are other, similar questions out there but non of which have the correct answer for me.
I have a fresh Magento 2 installation, built using composer. I have done nothing on it apart from install sample data using the
php bin/magento sampledata:deploy command followed by
When I go to a category page, the images are all 404-ing. The folder
pub/media/catalog/product/cache is not being generated. The permissions are as per the Magento 2 docs:
pub/media/catalog/product$ ll drwxrwsrwx 8 matt www-data 4096 Apr 21 10:38 ./ drwxrwsr-x 3 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 ../ drwxrwsr-x 35 www-data www-data 4096 Apr 21 10:35 cache/ drwxrwsrwx 3 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 g/ drwxrwsrwx 4 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 l/ drwxrwsrwx 9 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 m/ drwxrwsrwx 4 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 u/ drwxrwsrwx 9 matt www-data 4096 Apr 20 14:02 w/
I have GD installed and am running PHP 5.6.
The memory limit in my php.ini file is set to 2048M. I know this is far too high but I was ruling out the memory limit as a cause.
I have reinstalled Magento 2 several times.
I have created PHP script to create folders and files within the product cache directory and that works without issues.
When I go to a product view page or run
php bin/magento catalog:images:resize, the
pub/media/catalog/product/cache folder is generated.
I have no idea what to do from here! Let me know if you need anything else from me.
Would really appreciate any kind of help on this!
