I am converting an existing multi store Magento 1.7 to 1.9 and cannot get the rwd theme to work. I want to appy a custom theme but thought that I should get RWD working first.
After conversion the Magento 1.7 default theme shows up.
I used a copy of my production DB and an app/etc/local.xml corrected for the test DB and loaded the site to get the database upgraded.
In Admin I changed the package to rwd and cleared out the theme, info for other scopes.
What is preventing the rwd to show?
I can make a new 1.9 install and it works as advertized including the RWD theme.
