I have read a lot of posts similar to the problem that I have and the majority of them say to change the max upload in the php.ini file.

When I try to install with extension manager I get the error with upload message.

My issue is that in the php.ini file there is no max upload value to change, and when I tried to manually enter it in there is no difference, still get the error.

register_globals = off

allow_url_fopen = off

expose_php = Off
max_input_time = 60
variables_order = "EGPCS"
extension_dir = ./
upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
precision = 12
SMTP = relay-hosting.secureserver.net
url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="

Strange host? A full php.ini file looks like this: http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/php.ini  - very different from your short version....

Try using the remote installer component, available on the VirtueMart download page.

Thanks for the help.  Are there any instructions anywhere that show how to use the remote installer?  I didn't see any in the zip file
