I'm in the process of an upgrade from 1.12 to 1.14 - I did an upgrade to 1.13 in between but read about a lot of issues with redirects.

I have got the site up to 1.14 without anything seemingly having issues except for the fact I still cannot get my product urls working correctly.

I have two sites, each with a product with the same name, each store needs the same slug for the product, but the domain name will change eg:



However the second one even on a different store / website is getting '-1' added to the url, and I can't seem to clear them, as follows:



I require these to be the same, but can't seem to get them to work (I've deleted a few of the Magento generated url rewrites but still bumps the user to the wrong url, which is not great for my SEO).

How do I get Magento to allow the same urls on different store levels and websites? Note, these are two different products on two different websites in the same installation, not the same product with different urls on different websites views. (Not the best set up I know...)

  • Might have to do with magento.stackexchange.com/q/58662/22860 as this was the case with 1.13 at least. Try to remove or change the unique index and see if the problem still exists.

  • Did you actually try removing the unique index – or expanding it to contain store_id as well? It's usually only on value so has nothing to do with same or different products. Still sounds like this is the root cause.

1 Answer 1


The url-key attribute is configured to allow store specific values, It can live on a global scope only, website or store specific.

Try this:

  1. Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes > Edit Attribute > Properties > Scope = Global

  2. Reindex ALL
