After updating Magento 2 from version 2.1.7 to 2.1.8 there is no css loading for the backend (front end works fine). How can I get the css to load for the admin?

After deploying static content I got this error:

    Delete var/view_proprocessed rm -rf var/view_preprocessed from root, run bin/magento setup:di:compile command and try to deploy static again.

  • delete view_preprocessed before generating static files Jan 8, 2018 at 10:56
  • @BareFeet setup:static-content:deploy ;-) not di compile Jan 8, 2018 at 10:56
  • @PhilippSander Yes, you are right! I do apologise, also make sure you define the language too. I use en_GB on my site and have to define it every time. E.g. setup:static-content:deploy en_GB. By default it deploys en_US.

  • @PhilippSander I deleted view-processed and then ran setup:static-content:deploy en_GB en_US nl_NL but I still have the same error.

I managed to fix this problem by disabling all my extensions and then enabling then one at a time until I found that there was one which was causing the problem.
