How do I create websites

Hello,

I am looking for a good walkthrough about creating stores and websites. I have a site that is up and running and would like to have another store/website that has the iPhone theme associated to it using the same backend. Should this be a store or a website? How do I access a different store? Any help would be apprecaited.

To create a new store, go to: Admin panel > System > Manage Stores
Everything is pretty self explanatory after that.

This will also show you how to switch between stores: http://www.magento-mall.com/

Thanks for the reply. I was able to create an additional store and have a theme associated to it but when I browse to it I get the following message. “There was no Home CMS page configured or found.” What should I do next? Thanks in advance.

Create a homepage for that store.

Go to admin panel > CMS - and create another homepage linking to that particular store.

Great thank you. Hopefully you can help me with one more question I posted about redirecting iPhones to the iphone theme.
