As you know, each an online store includes many elements that are considered carefully to bring a highest result. However, a store is facing a lot of difficulties, how multiple stores are about? Therefore, in this post, i will show you a way to create Magento multiple stores:
Step 1: Add new root category for new store.
Go to Catalog > Manage Categories then click on “Add Root Category” to create new root category for each website. You set it to active and anchor.
Step 2: Create new website and store
Go to “System–>manage stores” to create new websites, new stores and new store views
Step 3: Set template for new website
Go to “system–>configuration” then choose the new website in “store select”, afterwards click on “Design” tab.
Step 4: Edit index.php
The most important part is editing the content of index.php file. Mage::run();
To customize this code to meet your own needs, just replace the domain names with your required domains, the website codes with your own website codes (in this example it’s the second_website_code:)
Through the information above, i hope that you can create multiple Magento stores easily and successfully.
