Installing Presta Shop
« on: September 30, 2016, 02:04:09 AM »
I thought it would be interesting to use Presta Shop to sell some of my personal items. I've installed the software using Softaculous, and, as usual, it was really easy. Presta shop contains a load of sample records to help you learn how to use it. Of course, you don't want these in your live version, so they have provided a data base cleaning utility to remove them. To activate this, follow the following steps.

Go to the "Modules > Modules" page.
Find the "Database Cleaner" module and click its "Install" button.
You are directly taken to its configuration page (if not, click its "Configuration" button).
Read and accept the warning, then click the "Delete Catalog" button: it will delete all your products and their attributes, manufacturers, etc.
Read and accept the warning, then click the "Delete Orders & Customers" button: it will delete all your customers and their orders, carts, etc.
Click the "Check & fix" button to refine your database integrity constraints.
Click the "Clean & optimize" button to reorganizes the physical storage of table data and associated index data, to reduce storage space and improve I/O efficiency when accessing the tables.
THERE IS NO WAY BACK. Be sure to only click these buttons if you do intend to wipe your database from its default content.
