After installing Magento 2 CE (version 2.17) fresh version. I found following 404 error of the path on following directory pub/media/styles.css. I found some solution over the internet and I tried that, but no one is work for me. Then on the admin panel, Content->Design->Configuration and on the HTML Head section's "Scripts and Style Sheets" field I found following code

<link  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"  media="all" href="{{MEDIA_URL}}styles.css" />

But on the following directory, no file exists.

Please help me to get rid of this problem.

Try this,

Remove all files with in static folder, not .htaccess, /pub/static/* file. and remove all file with in var/*

Then run,

 <mage-root>  rm -rf var/*
 <mage-root>php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
 <mage-root>php bin/magento cache:clean

Clear cache, Then check it.

  • Thanks @Rajkumar for the reply. But not works for me. the problem is on directory pub/media/ not pub/static. Commented Aug 8, 2017 at 11:50

Actually, there is some issue with Magento version or permission, I used this file to load the layout.


Upload the file on root to pub/media
