How to delete statistics/dummy data from Prestashop 1.6

Published in Prestashop 1.6
You just installed Prestashop 1.6 on your server and it looks great! Especially all those statistics which show past sales. I bet you can’t wait for your shop to look like that! OK. Now you’re over it. You’ve started customising Prestashop and want to remove the statistics/delete the data. Here’s how:


Login to the Prestashop 1.6 backend. You should go straight to the dashboard with all the sample data. If not just click on the dashboard link in the list on the left, hint, it’s at the top.

Now that you’re at the dashboard with all the sample data/statistics, scroll to the bottom and look on the right hand side. You will see a block which says “Demo Mode” - “This mode generates fake data so you can try your Dashboard without real numbers.” - Bingo! Turn it to “no”.
