for multi-store. There are lost of threads on how to configure multi-store. Pay particular attention to the need for a / at the end of the URL
In a nutshell, just point the other store domains names to the same folder as the install folder and configure the store in admin.
Also, makes sure you're not reading info on multi-store "on localhost" (unless you want to install on Xammp for a devel environment)
I am also having a little trouble understanding how to install a new theme, if you could point me in the right direction too that would be great.
If the theme has been done correctly, you just drop the folder into catalog/view/theme
Then go to admin > system > settings > store and there you will see a drop down box from which you can choose the new theme. Open Cart is smart enough to know that a new theme is now in the theme folder. So, all you have to do is select it in admin and save.
Welcome to Opencart
