 - php bin/magento sampledata:deploy
  • But i got this .. Could not find a matching version of package magento/module-sales-sample-data. Check the package spelling, your version constraint and that the package is available in a stability which matches your minimum-stability (stable).

After that i have downloaded Zip file from mageplaza extract file and paste file in magento directory and execute command.

I got Nothing to import.

Is there any other way to install sample data. i am using apache2, php 7.2. i have installed each thing sepratelly not any xampp, lamp etc.


You can install sample data as a official composer package. See the instructions on the dev docs: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/install-gde/install/sample-data-after-composer.html.

  • Ok then try the following approach: Clone sample data from github.com/magento/magento2-sample-data. If your Magento instance was cloned from the master branch, choose the master branch when cloning sample data; choose the develop branch if Magento was cloned from develop. Link the sample data and your Magento instance by running: # php -f <sample-data_clone_dir>/dev/tools/build-sample-data.php -- --ce-source="<path_to_your_magento_instance>". Replace sample-data_clone_dir with the directory where you have the sample data cloned and also replace path_to_your_magento_instance with Oct 1 '20 at 11:00
  • Also if your having issues after that, change the permissions chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/magento2/magento2-sample-data/ , where www-data:www-data is the group. Oct 1 '20 at 11:03
