Hi,

We are looking to close one of our websites on our multi-store installation, but the one we want to close is the default one, not the additional ones. I attempted to remove the secondary one, and they edit the default to the details of the second store, but this failed, so am hoping someone can advise of the best way to do this. Ideally, I would like to keep running the site from the same files and database as I have a large number of extensions and don't want the hassle of re-installing, and re-customising all the code I have changed over the past few years (even if I could remember them all).

Is there a simple way to do this? I'm using 1.5.4.1.

Thanks in advance.

The default store is based on the main values in the "setting" table.. and doesn't have an entry in the "store" table.
So you can't delete it.. but you can simply rename it to the store name you want and change the url to match.
But then you'll need to know or hire someone that knows how to update all the places in the database where store_id = 1 and change it to store_id = 0.
PM me if you would like a quote for moving the sub store to the main spot

Thanks Qphoria.

Here are the steps I tried, can you advise if I have missed something?

1. Swapped store id's from 1 to 0 and 0 to 1 in category_to_store, product_to_store, information_to_store, manufacturer_to_store and order tables.
2. Swapped url's in admin > settings
3. Changed url's in config and admin/config

Is there something basic I am missing here? If its more complicated I am happy you to provide a price for doing this as every time I try I still end up with the store not loading at all.

Thanks yodapt, I think I may have managed to sort it.
