Load test data in manual installation

The Vagrant VM automatically loads test data from a fixture on it's creation. If you want to load this data in your manual installation, run the following commands (Note: This will remove all data previously stored in the database):

python manage.py flush --no-initial-data
python manage.py loaddata test_data.json
