I installed Magento 2 with Softaculous successfully. I only added code to .local host in Magento root for running 3 stores based on the same Magento installation (taking the code out does not make any difference to the issue below).
On 2 of my stores, after adding to cart and clicking "Go to Checkout' the screen only displays the 'logo and the 'order summary' without the 'shipping' step, see https://babyplus.com.my/checkout Same for my Contoursbaby (Malaysia) website.
On the third store however it consistently works fine, running the SAME Magento installation: https://babyfair.com.my/checkout
'Checkout with PayPal' works fine on all websites.
I had a well-known Magento extension developer have a look at this, however they could not find the solution.
Some background info: the website runs on shared hosting on Litespeed Server. We had to run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy to make images appear.
