After changing the password and language the admin panel buttons no longer worked (were un-responsive). In trying to fix this issue I did the following,

  1. Removed the pub/static folder
  2. Ran php bin/magento cache:clean and php bin/magento cache:flush
  3. Next I ran php bin/magento setup:di::compile then php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

After doing this the style for the site has gone and the links still no longer work. What can I do to fix this?enter image description here

I think you forgot to give proper permission to the folders, run following from magento 2 root;

chmod 777 -R var pub generated

You can omit generated folder if you're still on 2.1.x or 2.0.x versions.


Please try to run below command:

bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy --theme Magento/backend en_US
