Step 5: Final step – Mage Content File Upload

As we’re done with Mage installation. Next, we will upload the media contents from the sample data folder. Next the media files should be uploaded in the same ROOT of Mage installation. Hence navigating the sample data folder, we can easily find contents under the “media” folder. Now we will upload the entire media folder using FTP client such as “FileZilla”. 

As we discuss earlier, “How to make FTP connections” in our few articles. Here we would like to request you to follow “Making ftp connections” section under “How to install a magento theme? – Manually“.
