I have installed Drupal 8, but the default CSS is not applied (see http://ec2-54-187-215-79.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/user/1 for example).

enter image description here

Chrome's 'inspect' functionality reveals that the CSS is loaded properly from http://ec2-54-187-215-79.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/sites/default/files/css/css_4w6DyMZOD_Fu1oxqpACBFcOPDgVYtgOuayu9S6-8btc.css?0

What is causing this issue? How can I solve it?

    It seems to be like that is the minimum CSS that is been load from Stark. I could be wrong. Could you provide an example of the libraries definition and if you are loading it from a Theme or a Module ? Commented Jul 3, 2016 at 17:09
  • I have just performed the installation, so this is the delivered CSS. What do you mean by library definition? Where can I find them? Commented Jul 3, 2016 at 17:32

When you installed it, for Installation Profile, did you select Standard? or did you select Minimal?

enter image description here

It seems like you selected Minimal, which I highly do not recommend, Standard is the way to go. Delete all the tables in your DataBase and go to http://ec2-54-187-215-79.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/install.php and install again.

  • I think I selected minimal. I'll try your recommendation. Commented Jul 4, 2016 at 15:22
