Multistore set up

If you would like to create multistore you don’t need to install cart again or anything do with files. Only you need is to do following two steps:

1. Setup additional domain (addon domain) or subdomain in your hosting provider admin panel.

• Due to DNS propagation, the subdomain can take up to 24 hours and more to start working
• Make sure to link the subdomain to the path where the default store was installed to. It means all of stores share the same system files. You don’t need to copy system files for each store anymore.
• Make sure there is no redirection setup for new subdomain/domain
• Usually user may need to clear browser cache and DNS cache on local computer to resolve new or reconfigured domains/subdomains
• Also possible some settings in .htacess file or file permissions issue prevent correct work


Note: this first step is not responsible by TomatoCart. If you have problems please contact with your hosting provider later to make sure your domain/subdomain configured correctly

2. Define second store under administrator panel > Definitions > Stores  . At the end you will have more Store Fronts that share the same system files and database.

— Click the Add button to create new store.
