Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

Hello everyone,

 

I can't seem to click on anything once I sign into the backend (admin area) for Magento 2.0. I am using Cloud Flare technologies as I always have.

 

Here is my error log from cPanel: http://pastebin.com/RgNL5FCB

any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also when I click on anything in the admin area it is the link and the # at the end of the link. In other words it's not linking to anything.

 

Regards,

Nicholas S.

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

Hi,

 

 

hope Magento 2 is in Windows under Xampp

 

I had the same issue and below worked for me.

 

  1. Remove everything, except .htaccess file from pub/static folder
  2. 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.

Thanks pankaj_asp,

 

This solution did not work for me and as I said I am using cPanel.

This solution may work for others but it did not work for me.

Bad to know Nicholas,

 

Hope someone will come with answer soon, best of luck! 

 

Did you made any custom/new theme so far?

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

No I have not made any new themes as of yet, infact I think I preferred the old style dashboard to the new and current version in 2.0 just a personal opinion there.

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

Yes I agree, 

 

I feel the Mag2 still not ready, however on the internet if you search for the custom theme in Mag2, all of them are creating themes but no one is having a running demo of custom theme, that is really surprising.

 

they say they are easing with development but I feel its getting complex....

 

I would have completed half of my site if it was on Mag1, but in Mag2 I am still looking for solutions/how to/ messing with folder and still nothing in hand.

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

Did you check if your file permissions are set correctly? 

 

From your Error Log I can see a lot of "Permission denied" and:-

unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable and that '/home/geekcsol/public_html/' is executable

The proper file permissions to use will depend on your hosting environment and if you are unsure about this, you may need to contact your hosting provider for assistance.

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

The file permissions were all set correctly, I have chosen to continue to use version 1.x for the time being and as I said in an earlier response I much prefer the layout in 1.x.

 

Thanks all.

Re: Can't click anything on anything in admin dashboard

I had the same problem. It was due to file permission errors set at the host level (not correctable by me without root access). 

 

An easy way to see what is happening is visit the website and look at the Java Console. You will see as you click repeated "No permission" errors.
