[Solved]Save failed with the following error: Username in use.
« on: February 27, 2015, 16:04:19 pm »
Hello,

I'm using the latest Joomla 3 and Latest VM 3

When in the backend admin area of VM and I click on shop if I try to edit anything and save I get this error:

Save failed with the following error: Username in use.

But if i'm adding a product or category it saves just fine with no errors.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Solved my own problem. But I will tell you what was wrong for anyone else:

I transfered my old VM 1 cart to VM 3 even the users. So I have 2 users using the same emails, my old admin account and my new admin account had the same email. I deleted the old account and now I no longer get that error.

All You need to do is as follows:

open your database file with phpMyAdmin
find    _virtuemart_vmusers   table
change present  virtuemart_user_id   number on your super administrator id number  (it can be found in joomla control panel - Users-Manage)
save settings and njoy!!
