I have just made a fresh magento 2.0 install. However, all styles and images seems to me missing. Can I fix this without reinstalling?

  • Back end all links are working – Magento 2 Jan 12 '16 at 9:40
  • I'm not sure I understand? – user2806026 Jan 12 '16 at 9:42
  • Check your back end all images and link redirection is working or not – Magento 2 Jan 12 '16 at 9:43
  • Theres no styling on backend either.. Links seems to kinda work, but everything looks pretty funny. – user2806026 Jan 12 '16 at 9:46
  • did u check the file permissions ? if on a Linux based machine, u would have to assign permission to your folder structure – Reena Parekh Jan 12 '16 at 14:38

Try this Before that take Backup

Remove everything, except .htaccess file from pub/static folder

Open up app/etc/di.xml find the path “Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink” and replace to Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy

Note: Remove entire files and folder under pub/static except .htaccess file.

  • This is an accepted answer recommending modifying a core file. This is wrong and no one should do this. – mbalparda May 23 '16 at 12:50

if pub static has no css or not loading than download by command(in case incomplete pub>static)

 php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

Note: proper folder file permission not implemented can cause this. give proper permission

I hope this will help you.

You can run below command from magento root folder.

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

This will download the content perfectly in respective folders.
