I basically want to create a new store front in magento and have a different domain linking to it in magento using the same products.
I am using site1.co.uk etc just as an example.
I have created a new Store (site2) in magento and its own Store Front using the main stores root category.
I created an alias domain in Plesk Panel (site2.co.uk) pointing to the domain of the current magento site (site1.co.uk). I also tried a normal domain with its hosting root set to the same as the site1.co.uk root directory. The alias domain I set up in Plesk 12 has the "Redirect with the HTTP 301 code" setting diabled.
I then added the following to my main magentos .htaccess just above "RewriteEngine on"
SetEnvIf Host www\.**site2**\.co.uk MAGE_RUN_CODE=**site2**
SetEnvIf Host www\.**site2**\.co.uk MAGE_RUN_TYPE=website
SetEnvIf Host ^**site2**\.co.uk MAGE_RUN_CODE=**site2**
SetEnvIf Host ^**site2**\.co.uk MAGE_RUN_TYPE=website
However when I visit the new websites URL it takes me to the maintenance page of the current site (keeping the new URL in the bar not forwarding to the main store) and I am stumpted as to why this is happenening.
Any help is greatly appreciated and if I have missed out any info let me know
