Download Magento Sample Data
Import Magento Sample Data
Please note that Magento sample data must be imported into new (empty) database prior to the Magento installation. To achieve this, login to your hosting control panel and create a new database and username. Here is the tutorial to create MySQL database and username in cPanel.
Install Magento manually to your web hosting space. During the manual installation, do not forget to use the same database into which you have imported the Magento sample data in the previous step.
Upload Sample Media Content
Once you finish the Magento installation, upload the media content files from the sample data archive. This sample media content file must be uploaded to your Magento installation directory. All media files are stored under media directory of the Magento sample data archive you have downloaded.
