  • You want to run specific website from .htaccess configuration? Mar 26 '18 at 8:17
  • I want just set SetEnvIf Host myUrl MAGE_RUN_CODE=goal SetEnvIf Host myUrl MAGE_RUN_TYPE=website Mar 26 '18 at 8:36

The value of MAGE_RUN_TYPE determines if MAGE_RUN_CODE should be considered the code of a website or a store. Now let’s look at Magento: a website has a code (the default websites’ code is “base”), and a store (what is actually a view, since a store can have multiple views) also has a code (the default websites’ view is “default” by default, unless you’ve changed this off course). Now if you have a situation like I had, where you had a Magento installation with multiple websites and each multiple stores, you have different codes for both. For example, you might have the following website codes:

  • site1
  • site2
  • site3

And the following store codes (each representing a view in a specific site):

  • site1_en
  • site1_nl
  • site2_en
  • site2_nl
  • site3_en
  • site3_nl

Now let’s see what happens when I try to do this:

Mage::run('site2_nl', 'website');

What you telling Magento here is to load the website with the code site2_nl . But as we see, there is no website with that code. Therefore Magento will fallback to it’s default site, or show a 404 page if it fails to do that.

  • You can find the store codes in the store.code field and the website codes in store_website.code field (for M2 at least). May 19 '20 at 14:25
