I have installed vanilla (with sample data) Magento Community edition 2.4.2 on Mac OS with following technology stack however styles are not loaded at all, not even in head block. However I can see all CSS files in pub/static folder when content is deployed. As it can be seen in attached screenshot, there are NO errors in browser console as well.

enter image description here

Web server: Nginx

PHP: 7.4 with fpm

Elastic Search: v7

Mysql: 5.7.32 (Here I agree that on Magento's site Mysql 8 is recommended but with same version on linux, it works as expected.)

  • pcre.jit=0 is solution to php 7.4

You can try this if you have configured nginx correctly:

If you use php 7.4.20

Edit that php.ini file and find the section [Pcre] and add this line at the bottom of that section :


Restart your PHP

see : Magento doesn't include theme.css in html


Make sure you are serving the requests from the <magento_root>/pub folder at webserver level.


Within this URL - https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/install-gde/system-requirements.html - under the Operating Systems section - this is shared for your consideration. "Magento is not supported on Microsoft Windows and macOS."
