What should I do?


  • we can get the better idea if you could forward the console log error and which server you are using (apache/nginx) ? – Mohammad Mujassam Dec 22 '17 at 6:49
  • apache. where can I get this log error? – cmsantos Dec 22 '17 at 11:28
  • in browser press F12 key, I have doubt you have deleted the .htaccess file of pub/static, you can place this file inside `pub/static' github.com/magento/magento2/blob/2.2/pub/.htaccess – Mohammad Mujassam Dec 22 '17 at 12:10
  • I've checked the .htaccess file on pub/static and it's there – cmsantos Dec 22 '17 at 12:18

Open /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Find <Directory /var/www/html>

Replace rules inside with below rules.

<Directory /var/www/html/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted

Restart server and you are done.

Please follow below steps for resolve issue.

2)php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy (add language en_GB if your default language is not englishg)

  • check pub/static folder have any htaccess file ? if not then please add htaccess file form default magento setup , may be issue due to missing htaccess file – Navin Bhudiya Dec 22 '17 at 11:18
  • can I copy the .htaccess file from root to this folder? – cmsantos Dec 22 '17 at 11:25
  • I've copied the file and it's still the same – cmsantos Dec 22 '17 at 11:29
  • no , please download fresh magento and then copy pub/static/ htaccess file – Navin Bhudiya Dec 22 '17 at 11:29

Follow below steps and i am sure it will work:

1) Open .htacess, find and comment Options FollowSymLinks e.g #Options +FollowSymLinks

2) Deploy content by using the command: php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

3) Set permissions : chmod -R 777 var/ pub/static pub/media
