I am seeing many people having issues with 404 errors. I still not managed to get it work.
I am installing a complete new installation on Apache 2.4 with php 5.6 and installing on root.
No errors during install. When checking frontend, the page is "broken" due to missing css and images.
What is going on? Permissions seems so be correct (755/644) - Some files don't even exist, and some cant be loaded (404) even there are on server. I have tried reinstalling 3 times with different environment. Same issues.
Make any progress? The CSS is fixed yet commenting out the first 6 lines in the .htaccess file in the /static folder. I can't figure out the 404 issue with images. You can't add new products with images either.
I had some similar problem (pub/static directory was empty) ... Have you tried to run /bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy ?
You also set ownership? http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/install-gde/prereq/file-system-perms.html
Try to set mode developer: php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer
Then, php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Hi, I had this exact issue, and this fixed it in just a few moments:
