Can I import the demo MySql database directly via a .sql file?

Yes! A .sql file is included that you can import directly into your mysql database via phpMyAdmin. Here is how you do this:

  1. Backup your database!
  2. Open your WordPress database using phpMyAdmin on your web server
  3. Drop all of your tables: Structure >> Check All >> With Selected: Drop
  4. Click Import tab at the top
  5. Click Choose File and select the .sql file in your Made-Theme folder
  6. Click Go
  7. Open your wp_options table
  8. Change the value in the siteurl and home records to your domain (currently they are pointing to http://www.brianmcculloh.com/wp-made-demo)

After you make these changes, you can access your WordPress admin panel using the following credentials:

  • Username: demo
  • Password: industrialthemes

Once logged in you should see all of the demo content and settings except for the images (you will have to populate your own images - they are not contained in the SQL file.)
