I have uploaded the sample data folders into the media folder.
I do not have any navigation under the header or products and the blocks that show on the homepage link to an error page.
So obviously I am not finished doing something.
Now the .sql file that came with the sample data how am I to incorporate that into a phpMyadmin database?
When I try to import the sql file nothing happens.
Do I import it into a new database or into the current database holding all of my current magento info?
And regardless of which database I import it into what should the format be, just default? It gives me options of sql compatibility of none, ansi, etc…
