[SOLVED] confused about multistore configuration

Recommended Posts

Ok this is my problem. I have two domainnames "sublimix.be" and "sublimix-glutenvrij.be".

 

at my domain "sublimix-glutenvrij.be" i configured an alias, so this is linked to sublimix.be, where my prestashop installation is.

 

the url configuration of the shops is this

 

Sublimix E-shop

www.sublimix.be/prestashop

 

Sublimix Glutenvrij

www.sublimix-glutenvrij.be/prestashop

 

so they both point to the same directory on "sublimix.be" . And my thought, which is probably wrong, is that prestashop would see by the url what shop to show. But i have read the manuals and searched the web. But i only gained a headache and no answer.

 

So can someone please explained to me what makes prestashop know what shop to show. Because i hope i'm right when i say i don't have to install prestashop twice in a different folder.

 

Thank you in advance for the time you are willing to bestow on my question.

when you say alias, are you using plesk? what control panel are you using?

 

one of the bigger headaches for most is getting the url of the 2nd-nth domain into the prestashop install...

you should contact your hosting company...the key is that the domain name is not re-directed...i.e. 301/302's

 

for example:

plesk = park to main domain

plesk = alias to main domain

for shared (others and may differ by hosting company) = point the domain name to your root ps folder...

In my dsn settings i have the option "web alias" "web forward" "A" and "CNAME" . My website is hosted on a shared server.With this information is it neccessary to contact the hosting company. Or is there something i can do first?

 

Thank you for your help by the way

I would think 'web alias' would do the trick.

 

try this:

 

One thing that can trip you up is not clearing your browser cache and cookies. ..use another browser that you can delete your cache and cookies...test from there..

I just tried it, even on another computer. But it doesn't work. Maybe i'm doing something wrong.

 

When i made the new shop, i checked to copy all the data from the original shop. Then for testing if it worked, i changed the products. I disabled those that are not free of gluten, and thus they would be shown in the shop. But they still are all there.

I apologize for not checking your url's earlier...

 

look at your second domain name, when you navigate, check the url...it never changes..i.e. click any page and the url stays the same but no uri.

 

this tells me that your 2nd domain url is not set correctly in your hosting account, it is using masked redirection...you do NOT want to use masked redirects...

 

..and that is why it's not working....
