The demo site demo.waltercedric.com is automatically deleted (database and file system) and restored every 60 minutes to wipe the system clean for other new users.

login to Administrator panel is

login admin
password admin

How I've done it...
 green value have to been replace

1. Create all needed directories
Ex for plesk
# mkdir /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/db-demo-initial
# mkdir /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/file-demo-initial

2. First make a INITIAL backup from the database
In the state you want it to be for your demosite with mysqldump:
# mysqldump -u [DatabaseUsername] -p [DatabasePassword] [DatabaseName] > /path/to/filename

Ex for plesk
Files are store in private directory so only me can access them.
# mysqldump -uDatabaseUser -pDatabasePassword DatabaseName > /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/db-demo-initial/DatabaseName.sql

3. Then make an INITIAL backup of the file structure
#  cp -pir srcDirectoy destinationDirectory

Ex for plesk
# cp -prf /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/subdomains/demo/httpdocs/* /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/file-demo-initial

4. Then put everything in a CRONTAB

The purpose of this task is to restore file periodically, You can use mysqqlimport (but it didnt worked for Me), so I use the mysql command line
If you want lets say: restore database every 1 hours, ten past the hour, your crontab entry would look like this:

10 */1 * * * mysql -u[username] -p[password] [databasename] < [/path/to/filename]

If you want lets say: restore file every 1 hours, twenty past the hour, your crontab entry would look like this:
20 */1 * * *  cp -pir srcDirectoy destinationDirectory

Ex
5 */1 * * * cp -prf /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/file-demo-initial/*  /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/subdomains/demo/httpdocs
6 */1 * * * mysql -uXXXX -pYYYYY demo < /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/private/db-demo-initial/demo.sql
