Before asking this question, I did Google search but could not find a clear answer.
- 01 Website + 01 Store
- 03 Store Views (vi, en, zh) sharing same products and categories
I want to setup:
- mydomain.com/vi (for Vietnamese)
- mydomain.com/en (for English)
- mydomain.com/zh (for Chinese)
(All the URLs above include "http://", StackExchange wants me to remove it away from the post)
I did: go to Stores -> Configuration -> General -> Web -> choose Store View (vi, en, zh) -> edit Base URL for each Store View to be domain.com/vi (or zh, en) -> Save Config -> go to Cache Management -> select all rows and Refresh
THE RESULT: when going to the store home page (mydomain.com), the system redirects to the default Store View (which is mydomain.com/en), and then it shows 404 error.
What am I missing? Please give me a clear step-by-step answer. I'm using Apache with cPanel, PHP 7, Magento 2.1.2 Community Edition. I'm completely new to (2 days), I understand some basic fundamental ideas of Magento.
Your answers not only help me, but those newbies who would Google the same issue in the future.
