This happens after you run setup:upgrade command

In order to fix it, you have to deploy the static view files of your Magento shop by running below command:

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

Note: -f to force static deployment when in developer mode

  • Thank you very much, It worked brilliantly. Question is what it do and why magento does not do this itself during its installation? Feb 13, 2019 at 5:15
  • If you are in Production mode static files are not generated or cached.But Magento allows developer to write or add static / custom static files to the Magento file system when your Magento shop is set for production mode., like a custom css and js.
