Manish Prakash Staff asked 5 years ago

In the core_config_data table, there are two columns scope and scope_id

scope = default means this configuration is applicable for all stores

scope = websites and scope_id = {website_id} When storing a configuration specific for a store this is used

scope = stores and scope_id = {store_id} When storing configuration for a specific store view this is used
