My question is concerning the "create new store" functionality.
I saw that we have the possibility to create several stores with individual parameters,
But I don't understand how it works and how we have to use it for creating several stores.
Is it several stores in one global store or it is something else ?
Does it use the same database,... ?
Thanks for your help and kind regards.
I created a new store "demo1", set a bunch of parameters and clicked [Save]. Specified store URL as http://www.mydomain.com/shops/demo1/ (which did not previously exist)
Go to storefront = error. Store does not exist.
Created a "demo1" folder on my server and repeated above. Same results: error.
Is this strictly a *management* feature for managing multiple, individually installed, stores from a single management app/page?
the same with me!
can anybody help?
to explain a bit more...
since two days ago I am testing a store with OpenCart which was a great discovery for me.
now, for example, I have regular address at:
I put up a store on address:
shop.test.com - this store would be for retail purposes
and, I want to make:
b2b.test.com - this store would be for a kind of portal for other business.
First two, lets say domains, are working perfectly (www.test.com and shop.test.com)
I did created a new store under the admin page of opencart but going on the address of b2b.test.com just gives me an Index of page.
Also, can I have different prices on those two stores, or some other different settings like payment or shippment?
Or I should definitely need install new opencart store independantly?
no, you do not have to upload all the files...
In the meantime, I managed for b2b.test.com to become live, but only duplicating the stuff from shop.test.com.
It seems it is not working for me how it should...
Sorry for not being clear.
I still do not have access to the second shop content via front end.
Entry address (home page) is showing but only the content of the first shop.
I would need help in proper setup desparately.
I am trying to put in work the multistore feature of the OC itself.
It seems like at the end, the easiest way for me would be to just install another OC on second store, and to administrate it independently...
I have a store installed in a directory structure at htdocs/ it is the main site, and uses a database called DB1. It sells tours. I want to install another store linked to the first that sells merchandise for the tours (hats, mugs, etc.). It will be linked to from the first store in it's menu and will be called "shop". So, do I create a directory htdocs/store2 and a database called DB2 then install a fresh copy of OpenCart in htdocs/store2? If so, what's the point of the "Create New Store" in the admin? I'd have two independent stores with independent admins and databases.
What scenario is the "Create New Store" functionality there to address? Answers in clear English if possible to avoid confusion, (No offence!).
Content such as categories, products, manufacturers, information pages etc., can be set to show in whichever stores you like; stores can also have their own front page text, theme (template) etc. This is all managed from one Admin.
The installation will only contain one set of Opencart files (which may include multiple themes) and only one database (which includes tables like `product_to_store` to determine which products shouls show in which store(s)).
Different stores are addressed as sub-domains; all sub-domains are set to point to the same root folder of your Opencart installation.
yourstore.com could have two very different looking shops, tours.yourstore.com and merchandise.yourstore.com with a mixture of shared and unique content all under a single Opencart administation.
