Hi

Can Magento Community 1.7.0.2 have more than one website witch is independent from one another (each own database, template, etc.) but using only one magento installation?

is this possible?

If it is - how do you go about doing it?

Thank you

Hi amandamcdonald,

Its definitely possibly to have multiple stores running off the one instillation, i\’m not 100% sure about the separate databases but to be honest i\’m not sure its necessary - Megento does a pretty good job of separating them with most items/configurable options able to be split between the two stores, there is a running post about setting up multiple stores. Have a read of that post. #305887

Hope this helps.

Hello
Sure, Magento Community allows both multi-domain and multi-site setup. Nowadays, more and more people get involved into multiple store business. Check out the following links:
