Running multiple stores off one database


procarparts

Recommended Posts

I may have atleast two sites running off one database to keep all stock and invoices on the same database.

 

There are a few problems I see so far, one being that all settings will transfer over, including store name..which is a problem.

 

Another is order id, is there a way to set order ids starting with atleast a letter? or is there a way to run off one database and have it distinguish one order from one store against the other?

 

Or am I better off running one website per database?

 

I only ask because the old website that I am currently updating, actually had 4 website running off one database, and each site would generate its own unique invoice id (atleast the beginning ie. pcp1000 sed10001 and so on)
