Try below command it will deploy your content

php bin/magento set up:static-content:deploy -f

as per Magento 2's documentation

Default and developer modes: Magento generates them on demand, but the rest are cached in a file for speed of access.

From Magento 2.2 Manual static content deploy is not required. But you may still do that with -f option.


  • Thank you for the information. Because I installed aramex modules for my shipping method they Gave me steps to deploy it so even I will not run the php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy the aramex module will be running properly? thank you.

  • @kd_mj0312 If your magento 2 store is in the development mode then you don't need to deploy content. Your module should work fine. If there is no error in module. Commented Nov 9, 2017 at 9:03
