Is there a way to import a test store that is already setup and ready to use? I am looking to simply test a few extensions and am completely new to Magento. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Maybe you can satrt by using the original Sample Data?
There are some Magento 1/2 ready-to-use AMI available on AWS Marketplace, you can try one of those and have a working site up and running in a few minutes.
