Set up multiple websites or stores using Magento Cloud Docker

Magento Cloud Docker supports multiple websites or stores by adding subdomains to your Magento configuration. See Understanding websites, stores, and store views.

To add support for multiple websites and stores:

  1. Ensure that the php.ini file includes the configuration for the magento-vars.php file:

    1
    
    auto_prepend_file = /app/magento-vars.php
    

    Magento Cloud Docker applies the configuration in the php.ini file to the Docker environment if it is included in the root directory of your project.

  2. Add each subdomain to the /etc/hosts configuration file.
