I've spent more than a week to solve the problem with URL's in my Multiple Stores in Magento Community 2.3.2, but I got nothing.

What I need:

URL structure: example.com/store_name/store_viewname instead of typical example.com/store_viewname offered by Magento 2 with "Add Store Code to Urls" activated.

What I've done:

1) Created Website - Store - Store View.

2) Added individual Secured and Non-secured Base URL and Base Link URL for each store like: http://example.com/store_name/ and https://example.com/store_name/

3) Pointed proper CMS Home page in Default pages

4) Created subfolder with index.php and .htaccess with modifications:

require __DIR__ . '/app/bootstrap.php'; #tried /../app/ also
$params = $_SERVER;
$params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_CODE] = 'store_viewname'; 
$params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_TYPE] = 'store';
$bootstrap = \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap::create(BP, $params);
/** @var \Magento\Framework\App\Http $app */
$app = $bootstrap->createApplication(\Magento\Framework\App\Http::class);

and .htaccess below RewriteEngine = On:

SetEnvIf Host www\.example\.com/store_name MAGE_RUN_CODE=store_viewname
SetEnvIf Host www\.example\.com/store_name MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store
SetEnvIf Host ^example\.com/store_name MAGE_RUN_CODE=store_viewname
SetEnvIf Host ^megamolis\.ru/store_name MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/store_name/.* [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/store_name$ [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [E=MAGE_RUN_CODE:store_viewname]
RewriteRule .* - [E=MAGE_RUN_CODE:%1,E=MAGE_RUN_TYPE:store]`

Of course, Cache Flashed and php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f after changes. And symlinks of app, pub, lib, var added to the subfolder. Moreover, I tried to create subfolders both in example.com and example.com/pub for checking.

What I've got:


Whoops, our bad...
The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why.
If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct.
If you clicked on a link to get here, the link is outdated.

It seems 404.

This error designed in the style of Magento. example.com/static and example.com/media work in design of DEFAULT store. Because I added the path (Base URLs) to example.com/static/ and example.com/media/ in Store Config.

example.com/store_name/store_viewname has the same result

And if I try to change the store to default it redirects to https://example.com/store_name/store_viewname/stores/store/redirect/ instead of example.com

example.com works perfectly. I need your help. Thank you.

Now, I want to add some information: I use Apache + NGINX

Store config in Magento Admin Panel:

Url Options

Auto-redirect to Base URL - Yes (302 Found)

Search Engine Optimization

Use Web Server Rewrites - Yes

You must accord your code based on https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/config-guide/multi-site/ms_over.html

MAGE_RUN_TYPE can be either store or website
Use website to load a website in your storefront.
Use store to load any store view in your storefront.
MAGE_RUN_CODE is the unique website or store view code that corresponds to MAGE_RUN_TYPE

Can you post a screenshot of your stores configuration?

You can also read https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/config-guide/multi-site/ms_apache.html

  • As you see in my question, the "store" is applied everywhere in the code.
