for installing the beta-2 of version 8 of SuiteCRM
Note, the instructions did not include the requirement to install Composer, but it is required so I did that as well.
When all was done, I pointed my browser to the installation and what was displayed (after login) was the SuiteCRM home page (I think) but with no css so it was not useful.

Has anyone experienced this and if so, what was the resolution?
I did get a bit further by searching for my URL (IP Address) in the Suite directory and found it defined in the public/legacy/config.php directory.
So I set the browser to
