I followed the online instruction and successfully installed Magento 2 without sample data by using PHP composer.
In the above process, I also authenticated to https://repo.magento.com and saved my credentials in ~HOME/.composer/auth.json
Now I want to deploy the sample data.
By following the instruction at:
I do the following:
Then I ran into the following error:
The 'https://repo.magento.com/packages.json' URL required authentication.
You must be using the interactive console to authenticate
I followed the instruction and ran "composer update" and it doesn't ask me for any authentication information. However, I am still getting authentication error when try to deploy the sampledata module.
What is the reason behind?
You need to setup authentication in your auth.json file. Did you generate a key as specified here: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/install-gde/prereq/connect-auth.html
Yes, I setup authentication already during the installation of Magento2.
It's in the file ~HOME/.composer/auth.json
I also followed the instruction on the page and run "composer update" in the Magento installation folder, and the command runs successfully.
auth.json must be available in user's home directory.
something like this
I finished magento 2.0 SW install successfully, I can login the store front and admin page, every thing looks fine.
When I tried to install sample data, I hit the exactly same problem.
Update: Now this is fixed.
