Clearing Magento after testing

I am currently doing a lot of tests in Magento so I can get familiar with it. Unfortunately the database is extremely cluttered with my tests. I wish to clear up the database so I can start over again. This means doing the following:

  • Clearing all products
  • Clearing all attributes
  • Clearing all attribute sets
  • Clearing all categories
  • Clearing all orders, shipments, transactions etc.

I have found a post on the Magento forums for clearing the products, which is the following SQL:

SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = 0;

I would need the same for the others mentioned. Unfortunately I don't know which tables are holding all the different data, otherwise I would've done it by myself. I also don't want to clear the wrong tables by accident. I hope you can help me!

Solutions

You can just empty the whole database and Magento will run all its install/upgrade/data scripts again on the next pageload. This will "factory reset" Magento and will destroy all your changes.

A good habit is to create a module that contains all your basic store settings inside install/upgrade/data scripts. This has the benefit that these settings are stored in version control and all the different websites you have for the store (production, staging, user acceptance testing, etc.) will be kept up to date.

If there are multiple persons working on a site, we even create a new module for every setting group so the versions don't conflict when we merge code.

In your case, I would create a module that setups all the settings you want to keep. If you wipe the database, Magento will be completely clean AND including the settings you want!

You can have a look at the install/upgrade scripts of core Magento to see how Magento installs it's initial data/settings.

You can use this function to delete attribute sets.

 $resource = Mage::getSingleton('core/resource');
$db_read = $resource->getConnection('core_read');
 
$attribute_sets = $db_read->fetchCol("SELECT attribute_set_id FROM " . $resource->getTableName("eav_attribute_set") . " WHERE attribute_set_id<> 4 AND entity_type_id=4");
foreach ($attribute_sets as $attribute_set_id) {
    try {
        Mage::getModel("eav/entity_attribute_set")->load($attribute_set_id)->delete();
    } catch (Exception $e) {
        echo $e->getMessage() . "\n";
    }
}

And look for this table to remove attribute

catalog_eav_attribute
eav_attribute
eav_attribute_set

Check eav_attribute column is_user_defined so you can get some idea.

For Magento 2, see this Gist.

Prior to launching a new Magento eCommerce website, at development phase, you’ll always have to carry out testing and this will require creating test orders and customers to ensure that all processes function correctly and as you would expect.

This can often end up leaving a load of test data in the system which you won’t be wanting once the site is launched. Magento is notorious for inserting data in multiple database tables so we’ve provided the SQL script below that will cleanly delete all this data from your Magento database (and reset the increment counters for sales, invoices, customers and shipping). This has been tested and confirmed working on Magento versions from 1.4.0.1 to 1.9.0.1.
