Installing/Uninstalling Sample Data

EasyCart wants you to be running quickly, and part of trialling software is to see sample data in your system without entering lots of information. If you wish to see our sample products, orders, and settings in your store system, you can quickly install our 'Sample Data'

Installing/Uninstalling Data

To access the sample data, simply click on the Store Setup menu and then the Basic Setup sub menu. Scroll to the bottom and you will see 2 buttons that allow you to install sample data and to uninstall sample data.

This process will clear out any products you may have installed, orders that may have been entered, user accounts and other information. You will not want to click and install sample data if you have entered your own data into the system.

Manual Sample Data Installation

Some servers have difficulty copying the sample data from the wpeasycart servers, others get the files copied but do not have write access to unzip and copy the files into the products folder. Please follow these step to manually install the sample data:

1. Download the following files:install products zip and install products sql

2. Unzip the products zip, replace the products folder with the one in the zip at your wp-easycart plugin locations (wp-content/plugins).

3. Run the SQL install script on your server. This can be done through phpMyAdmin or another database management software.

Note: This is a great way to install trial data into your trial plugin, see if the plugin is right for you. If you choose to go with a license, then this gives a great way to uninstall trial data and get a clean shop ready for your information.
Note: This process will remove and place new data into your shopping system. If you have entered products or data and want to keep this data in your shopping system, you may choose to not uninstall this data.
Note: This process only updates EasyCart information in the database. It will not overwrite your WordPress page content, blogs, posts, or other data outside the scope of EasyCart data.
