I just installed a fresh copy of Magento 2.2.2 and the menu (the one on the left side) is not working in the admin panel. Nothing happens when you click the icon.

I checked the Chrome console and these errors are showing: enter image description here

I am running CentOS 7, Centminmod with PHP 7.1.13. Any help will be highly appreciated.



You should try disable static file versionning.

Go in Store > Config > Advanced > Developer > Static Files Settings > Sign Static Files and set option to "No".

If you can't navigate in admin, then go to core_config_data table in mysql database.

Search for path 'dev/static/sign' and set value to 0.

Clean cache :

rm -rf var/cache/ var/generation/ var/page_cache/ var/view_preprocessed/ var/di/ pub/static/frontend/ pub/static/adminhtml/

Then reload your admin page. Hope it helps.


Try below listed commands

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

php bin/magento cache:flush

Remove directory /var/page_cache /var/cache /var/generation /var/view_preprocessed and /generated from root dir. Give it a try and let me know if you still find an issue.

    Are you sure about deleting the var and generated directories? They seem to have important files. – Afaq Shahid Feb 10 '18 at 20:03
  • Don't worry about it magento will create it automatically. – Sarvesh Ahuja Feb 10 '18 at 20:13

    Deleting /var entirely is not recommended. It holds .htaccess file which should not be deleted. You can find more information about deleting generated files manually in the docs devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/howdoi/php/php_clear-dirs.html – vitoriodachef Feb 10 '18 at 20:28

    If you delete whole /var it will create .htaccess as well. But still its not right way I agree. Updated answer. – Sarvesh Ahuja Feb 10 '18 at 20:34
