Install Sample Data

Before installing Magento, download and install sample data and media.

  1. Using phpMyAdmin, import the sample data sql file “magento_sample_data_for_1.6.0.0.sql” into an empty magento database.
  2. Copy the contents of the sample “media” folder into the media folder of your Magento installation.

Admin login fails without error message on localhost

On or near line 104 of /var/www/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php

/* this is commented out for locahost development versions so admin can login

if (isset($cookieParams['domain'])) {
	$cookieParams['domain'] = $cookie->getDomain();
}
*/

Add write permissions to:

~/magento/app/etc/
~/magento/media/
~/magento/var/
