I intend to develop an e-commerce solution using Magento Community Edition (free version). During Magento Community Edition installation, we need to first install sample data (given in the magento web-site) which has to be put into a new database in MySQL, which is reflected after the installation in the Magento Demo Store. I need to develop the e-commerce web-site from the scratch and I have given our own data to be put into the web-site. So, should I first delete the sample data and start developing the web-site, or keep the sample data and demo store as it is, and develop a new web-site with data ? Should I create a new database for this solution or can use the same existing database created for the sample data ?
Thank you very much for your feedback!
