I've setup a multi store in magento with a subdirectory like the following
The website for www.mydomain.com/newstore seems to be working fine i.e. products descriptions are appearing (no images) and My Account is working. It looks like the themes can't be found as no css or images are appearing.
I've setup the websites up with the themes in Admin --> System --> Design
The .htaccess file in the subdirectory has the following:
AuthName "Store Name"
SetEnvIf Host .*newstore.* MAGE_RUN_CODE='newstore'
SetEnvIf Host .*newstore.* MAGE_RUN_TYPE='website'
The bottom of my index.php in the subdirectory has the following:
$mageRunCode = 'newstore';
$mageRunType = 'website';
Any ideas what could be causing this?
Hmm - one thing that might be a clue is that you mentioned that product descriptions appear, but no images. Do you mean you have images attached to those products, and the product images aren't appearing either?
Also, have you double checked the file ownership and permission settings of the subdirectory and any files under it? What do your base URL settings look like at the global and website levels in System -> Configuration?
What about files and folders structure on your webserver, how did you setup this ?
Have a look at this post from Stack - maybe it gives you some pointers on what I was referring to in my ealier post - did you try that ?
