Long story short, we need to setup an off-site “beta site” for testing various things (new themes, extensions, etc). Management has ok’d this with one caveat, customer and order data cannot go on the test server.
Which tables can we exclude from the SQL dump to remove all order and customer data but maintain and preserve a functional install.
Can we just export the DB less the sales_ and customer_ tables and magento will still work?
