I will preface this post with stating that I have the configuration I am trying to achieve implemented already on a v1.1 site and it is working fine - I am now trying to achieve a similar set up but with another set of sites the only difference is we are using v1.1.3
We are running multiple sites off one magento backend (database and app) - we call this internally our master store
We have each website on a seperate domain and seperate host account. - we call these our secondary sites
We have configured the secondary sites in the master store admin - all ok
We have uploaded the templates for the secondary stores - all ok
We have altered the index.php on each of the secondary stores - all ok
All of the secondary sites are resolving correctly showing the correct templates etc
All of the secndary sites are showing the correct categories in the top nav.
The issue: when we add products that already exist in the master store to the categories for the secondary websites the products do not show up in the frontend of those secondary websites. We get an error message stating “There are no products matching the selection.”
However if we create new products and add them to the categories for the secondary store - they show up fine.
The products show fine in admin (on master store) etc and we have done several cache resets - manual and via admin - to no avail.
I am sure this is something really stupid I have forgotten to do , but it is driving me mad now, any help would be appreciated.
As stated we have the exact config working already on a v1.1 site - it is just this new config on v1.1.3 that is not working.
Thanks a lot.
