I've got a shop with two store:

  • DE (Store name: DE), (Store view: de, code: de)
  • UK (Store name: UK), (Store view: en, code: en)

By default, the shop is DE (German)

I've got a 404 error when : I go to the shop, go on a category and try to change the language to en (English).

I figure out that :

sitename.com/en/modern-carpets.html?___store=en&___from_store=de -> work

sitename.com/en/modern-carpets.html -> doesn't work

And also that if I switch off my cookies in my browser, everything is working.

I am using magento community

Already thank you that you took time to read my issue.

  • I´m not sure if this is the same issue but you could read up on this community.magento.com/t5/Programming-Questions/… and check for Vinai´s fix on here github.com/Vinai/VinaiKopp_StoreUrlRewrites

  • So I tried the Vinai solution, but was not working for me. But after research I also figure out that store cookie was not set when the shop was on "en". A very quick fix will be to edit the index.php : $uri = substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 0, 4); if ($uri == '/en/') { $mageRunCode = 'en'; $mageRunType = 'store'; setcookie("store", "en"); } I guess it's a very dirty solution, but for now it's work.

This issue can be come for cookie is not being saved on your store.

  • Please check your browser cookie after switching language. There must have one cookie with a name of 'store'.

If you can not found that Then please go the system->configuration->web section and please set up session cookie management on a right way

  • I set the cookie domain and the cookie path and now it's work perfectly well ! Mar 2, 2016 at 13:18
