Virtuemart convertECB does not work
« on: September 07, 2018, 22:35:13 pm »
Any site which is using convertECB currency convertor is now working bad - the prices are not converted! It's very important issue and it should be fixed very quickly.

The reason is that the URL:
http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml
is not available any more and it must be:
https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml

The bug is at version <= 3.2.14.9808

However, you can do it yourself - it's quite easy. All the changes should be done on the filesystem (usually through FTP).
1) open file:
/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/plugins/currency_converter/convertECB.php

and replace line no 26 with:
Code: [Select]
    var $document_address = 'https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml';
2) open directory /cache/
delete file daily.xml there (if exists)
delete whole folder convertECB (if exists)

3) open directory /media/
delete file daily.xml there (if exists)
delete whole folder convertECB (if exists)

Thank you DavidZ! My customers was complaining today about ridiculous prices in other currencies than my base currency. Your fix did the trick, thanks for sharing the solution!

Cheers
