The e-commerce.

2 stores @ 1 database

Klaus Barbie

Recommended Posts

I would like to run 2 OS stores on my server account.

I have only possibility to use one database.


Is it possible to force OS to use prefix 'shop1_' & 'shop2_' when creating and using SQL tables?


How to do it... and not forget about sth? :D

OK, please note that I have not done this before, but I was curious about that issue so I made a small research in osC files!


I would say, YES, it is possible for two or more shops to share the same database because you have a manual possibility to change the table's names used by osC (I always refer to a standard osC installation, or using well programmed/installed mods!). The table names are defined in file catalog/includes/database_tables.php and in admin/includes/database_tables.php, so if you alter those table names your osC shop will use the new tables.


I don't think that it is difficult to have two shops on one virtual server, it will need some time and a good text/code editor to accomplish it! If you need more details and assistance on how to do this 'dual' installation, let me know on this forum!
