I overwrote the media and skin folders on the magento installation with the sample data's skin and media folders. I also ran the query against the database. Now I have a problem because "There has been an error processing your request", and I can't access Magento site any more. What can I do to pull through the sample data, and have my Magento working again?

  • Try truncating core_resource and flushing caches. This will make all setup scripts run again.
