I have installed the above version of Magento 2 (no sample data) onto my 1an1 hosting site. No errors on installation however, the stylesheets are not loading. I've tried a few suggestions to fix via here and the magento forum but most if not all answers use terminal console or similar for the fixes for which I do not have access to.
When I look in the pub/static folder there are no css files. I'm not sure if this is a rewrite issue or not. pub folder has been set with file permissions 777 via filezilla ftp.
I did not use the composer as I am really not sure how to use this under a hosted site.
I am also getting an Internal Server error 500 when trying to access the admin area
Do I need to copy the css files to the static folder or elsewhere ?
This lack of css etc seems to be a common problem with the installation but I have NO idea how to fix this on 1and1. Any help would be appreciated however please keep it simple for me please.
