Clearing Test Data From Magento

On many occasions we’ve needed to clear out the test data from a Magento site in preparation for going live.  It’s not as trivial as you’d think, but I found a nice sql script thanks to Elias Interactive that was just what I needed.  I’ve removed a bit as I didn’t need to reset all the order numbers, etc.

updated 6/30/2010 for Magento 1.4

-- reset dashboard search queries
TRUNCATE `catalogsearch_query`;

Just run this script against the Magento database (make a backup first!).

      Yes, Marcos. Running these queries should work for you. As always we suggest that you make an entire backup of your database before running any queries like these. Hope this has helped you!
