    Multi-Stores Multiple Shops Support

    Have just installed this contribution and it has worked wonderfully well for me. Just thought that the installation instructions were a bit vague (or that I was a complete goof). I have documented the steps I followed and thought of sharing it. Here they go: MULTISTORE CONFIGURATION -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Start with a clean install of the OSCommerce package: 1) Copy all files from the multistores package to the relevant location in the OSCommerce folder, overwriting existing files in OSCommerce. 2) Copy the admin to root OSCommerce folder (instead of inside the catalog folder). 3) Modify the configure.php in admin folder to reflect the change in path. 4) Make a copy of the catalog folder with a new name, this will serve as the catalog of the new store. 5) Modify the configure.php in new catalog's folder to use the new catalog folder path. 6) Using Stores link in admin, add new store with its configuration table name say 'configuration_new' (this table will be created in the database). 7) In new store's catalog folder/includes/database_tables.php line "define('TABLE_CONFIGURATION','configuration');" change the name to the new stores configuration table 'configuration_new'. 8) Assign Languages to the new store (Localization/Languages). 9) In table 'configuration' (for default store) and 'configuration_new', add new rows with configuration_key 'store_id' and its value which reflects the relevant store_id taken from table 'Stores". 10) Add '//' (comment out) the lines as mentioned in the 'install' file of multistores package. Hope this helps...
