Please help me out here - I am following the instructions on how to install the newest version of Magento and it says:
STEP 3: You must install sample data before you run the installer.
The sample data is also available from the Magento website in the same download page as the installer.
This step varies by hosting provider and is out of the scope of this document. Consult your provider’s support/documentation for instructions on how to do this.
I contacted the hosting provider only to be told they do not support 3rd party software instalations.
When I go to the ‘Installing Sample Data Archive for Magento 1.0.19870” - it says:
Each archive contains a SQL script that should be applied on a clean database with your database management tool (phpMyAdmin or whatever you use), and a ‘media’ folder with sample product images that you should copy to your Magento media folder.
Please - please - please - someone help me find this ‘SQL script’ becuase I really cannot.
The other thing is: ”Please make sure that you have exactly the same version of Magento that the sample data is provided for 1.0.19870. ”
What? Pardon? How was that? Seriously - I am installing 1.1.2 and there is NO sample data 1.1.2 (at least I can’t find it)
I was really excited about Magento but now I’m just starting to think that you guys make it so complicated to install so that you can increase your revenue (to do the $149 professional installation).
I will be very greatful for any hints.
PS: What is the difference between version 1.1.1 and 1.1.2? I just uploaded 1.1.1. to the server few days ago. Thanx
