You can try with below steps. It worked for me.

Setp 1

i) Create folder MAGE_ROOT/magento2/

ii) Copy your magento root index.php and .htaccess

Setp 2

i) Open index.php, find below line and replace your_store_code with store code

$mageRunCode = isset($_SERVER['MAGE_RUN_CODE']) ? $_SERVER['MAGE_RUN_CODE'] : 'your_store_code'; $mageRunType = isset($_SERVER['MAGE_RUN_TYPE']) ? $_SERVER['MAGE_RUN_TYPE'] : 'store';

ii) Open .htaccess files and give your folder path

RewriteBase /magento2/

Step 3

i) Go to System->Configuration then select store view and General->Web

ii) Under Unsecure and Secure Base URL http://yourdomain/magento2/

iii) If ii(setp 3) don't load styles, js and media files, please set yourdomain_link/skin/, yourdomain_link/media/ and yourdomain_link/js/

Hope it will help you. Best of luck!

  • You can set from System->Configuration->(Select Your Store)->General->Web Skin: http://yourdomain.com/skin, JS: http://yourdomain.com/js, Media: http://yourdomain.com/media Apr 15, 2015 at 5:19


Version Magento 2.3.4

Setp 1

  1. Create folder MAGE_ROOT/gcentric/
  2. Copy your magento root index.php and .htaccess

Setp 2

  1. Open index.php. Copy the following lines from comments:

    $params = $_SERVER; $params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_CODE] = 'website2'; $params[\Magento\Store\Model\StoreManager::PARAM_RUN_TYPE] = 'website';

Search for the following code snippet and paste above lines before this:

$bootstrap = \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);

Replace string values 'website2' and 'website' with new store code 'gcentric'.

  1. Now, open the .htaccess file in MAGE_ROOT/gcentric/ and add new folder path

RewriteBase /gcentric/

Step 3

  1. Go to Stores -> Settings -> Configuration.
  2. Change 'Scope' to 'Default Config'.
  3. In URL Options, set 'Add Store Code to Urls' to Yes.
  4. Change 'Scope' to 'Gcentric'. Update the Base URLs from 'Default Pages' to newly created store.

Step 4 Since, we are creating multiple stores on the same domain. Therefore, styles, JS, media and skins should work correctly.

Assumption: There is a sub-store created in the existing domain with Store name 'Gcentric.com' and Store code 'gcentric'.
