Title: Enable Database Update Tools warning message although option is unchecked
Post by: kmeyer on October 01, 2014, 16:19:55 pm
On installing VM2.9.9c (on Joomla 3.3.4) and VM2.9.9e (on Joomla 3.3.6) I received the following warning, even though the option was not checked when I went into the configuration panel:
The configuration setting 'Enable database Update tools' is enabled. Please disable this for security measures here in the Configuration panel.

You are not alone.

I just updated virtuemart from V3.0.14 to 3.0.16. After updating VirtueMart the message "The configuration setting 'Enable database Update tools' is enabled. Please disable this for security measures here in the Configuration panel. " appeared. However, in .../administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=config, the option "Enable database Update tools" is unchecked.

Hi,

But should I let it reamin checked, always? Or I'd better have it unchecked..? What difference does it make for the site/database.

Cheers

Better unchecked, else you can use dangerous commands like "delete all and install sample data"
