Im struggling on this so i need help please, i have 2 websites on the same magento installation ( 188.8.131.52 ) :
CANADA ( default, code : base ) English (store view code : en_ca ) French ( store view code : fr_ca )
USA ( code : usa ) English ( store view code : en_us )
Add store code to url : yes Use web server rewrites : yes
the default website was the Canada one, but we decide to use USA as default, so i did this on dev ( i have no production site yet, still in dev mode ) :
Delete the USA website ( do you want to create a DB backup - i answer NO ) now i have the default website only ( canada with 2 languages ), I rename the Website name to USA ( keeping code to : base ), I rename the Store Name to USA store, I rename the Store view from en_ca to en_us, i delete the fr_ca store view.
After that i create my new website Canada with previous deleted settings, i reassign all my CMS pages and static blocks the the new Website, reindex, clear cache.
Everyting work except the USA - default(en_us) categories, it gives me a 404 ( not cms page 404, the default magento ugly blue & orange one ). All my products and CMS pages are working good.
What ive done since, i create a second store view in default website ( en_us2 ), this one work, i also create another root category and assign it to the USA Store, keep having this 404.
So it look like the default store view categories are down for some reason i did.
is there anyone that have face this issue before and/or have maybe a solution ?
