I have just followed the installation steps
Have configured my nginx conf exactly as per mage docs guide (to include the nginx.conf.sample file in my nginx site's conf file)
Magento has installed OK, but when I view the backend, the CSS is not loading (very bare HTML + links loading).
When I view the HTML for the page, I can see it is trying to load file eg: http://helloworld.dev/static/version1504621364/adminhtml/Magento/backend/en_US/extjs/resources/css/ext-all.css
However, on my server there is no folder 'version1504621364' ...
I have come across this page but not finding it very helpful especially since I am using nginx rather than apache.
I have also already run:
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Also have tried putting system into production / developer mode ... nothing working ...
No luck (neither front nor backend)... not sure why magento is throwing in that version1504621364 folder when requesting the CSS (or how to disable / fix it in either magento config / nginx config?)
any help much appreciated, g
