Magento2 installation problems

Magento2 installation problems

I have been having problems with getting Magento2 installed on LAMP CentOS VPS.

I setup everything via terminal on a Mac, logged in as the web account user, so ownership should be fine.

I have installed composer, and that is how I have installed Magento.

I cloned it from here: git clone

Installed via composer: composer install

Updated via composer: composer update

Ran the installer via visiting the domain and running through each section, which went through fine.

On visiting the site (front end) i get lots of 404 errors on /pub/static/frontend/Magento/luma etc etc.

So i run the suggested permissions:

    find . -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \; && find . -type f -exec chmod 660 {} \; && chmod u+x bin/magento

Which then give me this error: You don't have permission to access / on this server.


So i try different permissions:

    find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \; && find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Which then returns lots of 404 errors on /pub/static/frontend/ and backend admin files


I have redeployed the static files on a number of occasions and via a number of different methods

Where am i going wrong?

I have scrapped and tried to reinstall around about 100 times. I've tried every tutorial, read every documentation i can find. Can anyone shed any light on this and why I am having so many issues?

Have i missed an important step of the installation or something?




Re: Magento2 installation problems

Do you have mod_rewrite turned on? Also, the permissions will work only if you have a magento user created and is in the owner of the files as well as in same group as your apache user.  Please see :
