How many backend needed for a multi shop in OpenERP?

I have a doubt regarding how many Backends needed for a 4 shop 1 instance prestashop. in which there is NO SHARE of customers, products and quantity(in Shop Group)

I have multi-shop enabled Prestashop instance in which I have 4 shops

My Store   - http://localhost/prestashop/
Shop2      - http://localhost/prestashop/shop2/
Shop3      - http://localhost/prestashop/shop3/
Shop4      - http://localhost/prestashop/shop4/

In OpenERP, should I create 4 Backend corresponding to 4 different shop url or a single backend?

My question is that the configuration files are duplicated for each backend that corresponds to each shop URLs.

Case-1: When I imported shop details from 4 backends, the total number of shops created are 4 * 4 = 16. But according to logic, only 4 shops should be created at OpenERP instead of 16 shops.

Case-2: When I Imported customer details from MyStore backend, it only provides the customer detail available in MyStore shop only. so creating 4 backends is logically correct.

Is my understanding correct? How should I follow for 4 shops?


You can manage all in 1 instance

@Zahin, do you mean 1 backend at OpenERP?

If I am accessing the shop2 and Shop3 customers...we have to use seperate URL as below

http://localhost/prestashop/shop2/api/customers - Shop2

http://localhost/prestashop/shop3/api/customers - Shop3.

How can it be done with a single backend at OpenERP

Yes, its possible to manage multi store.

No need to create separate instance of OpenERP, Just single OpenERP database and all prestashop we able to sync.....

@Zahin, yes. I can understand that we need 1 OpenERP instance/database to access multi shop.

I couldn't use the demo prestashop instance since there is no username and password

I have added an image as I mentioned in my question. Please take a look.
