Greetings All,

I have detailed instructions for a Magento 1.7+ Multiple Store setup. These instructions were originally posted in the “Answers” section of this MagentoCommerce site, but it would appear that section no longer exists. You can search for them but can’t get to the postings in the “Answer” section. So, I have created this post.

Here is the an updated link to my Shared Evernote note with the setup instructions ...
https://www.evernote.com/shard/s199/sh/c97f555d-d5e4-4ae2-9a49-f46a3ce4cd6f/343bb3629e69f771e92eff1728689beb

I have also attached a PDF version you can download.

Keep in mind that the instructions are for Magento 1.7 and I have not been able to fully test with a 1.8 multiple store install. If anyone can add to this topic, please do so.

I have live working examples of a multi-store setup using the instructions I have provided ...

Originally yes, I had edited the original post above and put in working examples. Each of the stores are drawing from a single database setup. However, those example may no longer be running. Sorry.

Thank you for this information.
I used it to setup 2 stores, and it seems to work however the second store doesn’t hseem to have a skin.
The layout is like it doesn’t use a css file, just text on a white background.
Any suggestions for this ?
Thx

When this lack of CSS happened to me, I always found that I had made a small mistake in the process somewhere. I recommend double-checking everything.

You are right

the base skin url for the second store was not pointing to the main store.

Thx !!
