Restore/change currency after it has been deleted
« on: October 10, 2014, 09:47:04 am »
Hi all,
i wanted to change the default currency from US dollar to Euro and i thought that by deleting the currency it could solve the problem ( which of course it didnt). I now get this error: Currency is not formatted! Go to http://mysite.com/administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=currency&task=edit&cid[]=144.

I later found this : http://docs.virtuemart.net/faqs/92-how-to-change-the-shop-default-currency.html. I tried to change the default currency to euro, but it doesnt change. Does anyone know how i can restore the US dollar currency OR make euro my default currency without having this error.?

thanks in advance

Have you tried making a "new" US dollar currency in the vm admin?

But assume the id will change - you will probably have to change the id to 144 in the database to get you back to square one
