I went to the admin panel.

Then I went to

Stores > Configuration > Advanced > Developer > CSS Settings

Stores > Configuration > Advanced > Developer > JavaScript Settings

and enabled minify CSS and Javascript.

Now, CSS and JS of my website are not working. My admin panel and the website is broken. How do I disable this setting?


Access your MySQL and use these commands:

UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value`='0' WHERE `path`='dev/js/merge_files';
UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value`='0' WHERE `path`='dev/js/enable_js_bundling';
UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value`='0' WHERE `path`='dev/js/minify_files';
UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value`='0' WHERE `path`='dev/css/merge_css_files';
UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value`='0' WHERE `path`='dev/css/minify_files';

Or you can use the Magerun in your terminal:

magerun config:store:set dev/js/merge_files 0
magerun config:store:set dev/js/enable_js_bundling 0
magerun config:store:set dev/js/minify_files 0
magerun config:store:set dev/css/merge_css_files 0
magerun config:store:set dev/css/minify_files 0

Then run these commands to deploy again:

alias mage="php -d memory_limit=-1 -f bin/magento"

mage cache:flush &
mage indexer:reindex &
mage setup:upgrade &&
mage deploy:mode:set developer &&
mage setup:static-content:deploy -f &&
chmod -R 775 pub/static/ pub/media/ var/
  • Thanks for you answer. I ran mysql script and it ran successfully. It changed some values in table from 1 to 0. Do i need to run setup:upgrade now?

  • If I'm in developer mode, I need not run setup:static-content:deploy.Right?
