I successfully installed Prestashop with the sample data and template and started to play around. The MySQL database that was being used was called "db1".
I then purchased a Template from templatemonster and successfully installed it. It also had sample data but I did not initially install the sample data as I was having trouble setting the new template as the default template.
I decided to see if I could import the sample data from the templatemonster template into the "db1" database but no luck. I then though, ok, simply delete "db1", recreate it and then import the tables and data....this worked ok. I did not backup the original database and data (yep, I know it was silly!).
You experts probably can see where this is going.....now I can't login to the backend.
My question is this, how can I easily reinstal the original database and data so that I can get back into the backend?
Thanks for your help with this.
