How to Install Dataset in Akeneo?

Akeneo is powerful Product Information management System. You can know more about Akeneo from Akeneo site.

For installing Akeneo you can check these links


After installing Akeneo, you can add datasets in the Akeneo database. Akeneo also provides its own default dataset.

Follow these steps to Add datasets in Akeneo database

Step: 1

Before installing datasets you need Elasticsearch to be running.

Check Elasticsearch status by

sudo service elasticsearch status

if elasticsearch is running, then you can proceed to next step.

Otherwise, start elasticsearch service by

sudo service elasticsearch start

Step 2:

Add the following to app/config.yml

# app/config/parameters.yml
    database_driver: pdo_mysql
    database_host: localhost
    database_port: null
    database_name: db
    database_user: user
    database_password: pass
    locale: en
    secret: ThisTokenIsNotSoSecretChangeIt
    index_hosts: 'localhost: 9200' #for elaticsearch
    installer_data: 'PimInstallerBundle:icecat_demo_dev'

If you want just empty dataset then use:

# app/config/parameters.yml
    installer_data: 'PimInstallerBundle:minimal'

Step 3:

Run command

php bin/console pim:installer:db --env=prod

That’s it. For more information about customized datasets visit the Official doc.


You may face these problems if Akeneo dataset is not installed or elasticsearch is not running:

  1. Product page not loading in akeneo.
  2. Fatal Error: Table pim.pim_session doesn’t exist
  3. Error: No alive nodes found
