Unhappy localhost/dvwa not displaying correctly


localhost/dvwa webpage is displaying like in the attachment,only words are there,no links for database setup or login.


Instead of how locathost/dvwa should normally display(2nd attachment)

I tried to remove and recreate the SQL database, re-download DVWA files, checked apache2 and DVWA configuration files, but did not find any problem.
Can anyone point out the problem?

Edit:Also i read somewhere that this is the problem with my external .css files, either i deleted them or the path is incorrect.If that is the case,how to correct it?

You should examine the apache error_log, to see where it looks for the missing files.

I understand that you're a noob. but you could at least try to use your favorite search engine to find where apache stores its log files.

Also you didn't mention your distro. I guess it's a debian/ubuntu one, because you used apache2 in your OP. If that's the case check under /var/log/apache2 and post the relevant part of error_log.

I read it somewhere that the webpage or apache2 does not support php 7.0 and we must use php 5.6 .I removed php 7 and try to install php 5 from terminal..but the command for installing php 5 did not work.So i reinstalled php7 again.

You should make sure that each (sub)directory of the path /var/www/html/dvwa has the execute bit set:
Code:
find /var/www/html -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

See if the above helps before messing with php versions

Yes it's needed to end the command. And you should post the error you get, because "giving an error" says nothing to us.

Without further info, I can only suggest you, that you have to run the command as root, or through sudo.

Clear your browser cache, reload the URL and see what you get.
In case of errors post the new logs.

There are no errors in that log snippet. What is the problem now?
If you see nothing but a blank page, you need to enable php logging

The problem is not the same this time, as there are no errors in the log file.

Anyway since you're a newbie that doesn't try to use a search engine in order to solve problems, here is a link on how to install dvwa in ubuntu with php7. Try to adopt it to fit your setup.

Also IMO as a noob, you should have used a more user friendly distro and not Kali that is intended for more experienced users
