i am trying to install Magento version 2.1.7. I have installed appache2, mysql and php, all are running well. I used composer install to install all the dependencies required. After that i went to browser and directed through the localhost/magento2/ directory to get the setup running.

But i get a blank screen ! can anyone suggest me what else can be done ?

  • Did you set FIle Permission

  • Hi ! @Kothari thanks for your advice, I actually was able to install it properly. I gave file permissions as well and the installation went good. But now i am having a problem again as after the installation when i go to localhost/magento2/ i get a blank screen again and a page of Not Found error The requested URL /magento21/admin was not found on this server. when i try to go to admin.

  • After the complete installation when i went to localhost/megento2 i saw the home page but all the CSS was not working. So i went to clear the cache and setup upgrade and from app/etc/di.xml i re-copied this line Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy form <item name="default" to its above <item name=""view_preprocessed. Any how this procedure would have definitely worked in a windows PC. But i am using Ubuntu. Can you please suggests what can be done. Sep 19, 2017 at 7:17
  • Try this php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy remove pub/static except .htaccess then run that cmd
