Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

  • Follow the Installation instructions
  • Ensure you click Install Sample Data during installation
  • Remove the installation folder in the Installation interface
