  • I tried your suggestion which hasn't worked. The dashboard page doesn't fully load either unless you click on a link which is the main body of the page. – Eddie Aug 22 '19 at 5:30
  • pub -> static and remove static folder and remove var/cache, var/composer_home, var/generation, var/page_cache, var/view_preprocessed than run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f – Anas Mansuri Aug 22 '19 at 5:45
  • I didn't have var/generation directory but did the remove the other directories and run the static-content:deploy. The admin page now loads and the links are clickable but there is no graphics or styling on the page. It looks like a website where the CSS have been removed. – Eddie Aug 22 '19 at 6:26
  • Also in php.ini change max_execution_time to 500, memory_limit to 2048M, post_max_size to 2048M, upload_max_filesize to 2048M and max_file_uploads to 2048 and check permission. – Anas Mansuri Aug 22 '19 at 7:07

I contacted customer services on my hosting provider who did the migration and they were happy to rectify this issue for me. Still not too sure what the issue was.
