Have backdated to VM 3.2.12 as per instructions, tried changing the 'dangeroustools=0 to 'dangeroustools=1. Both unsuccessful.

Should I spend the time reinstalling Joomla 3.8.8 over FTP or is this not a Joomla problem.

Still unable to backup site, update site, change anything in the VM config etc. When I load the Tools and Migrations page in Virtuemart I get the following messages:

JFolder::create: Could not create folder.Path: /services

JFolder::create: Could not create folder.  and failure to store config suggests a server permissions issue.

Go to joomla back end > Site > System information > Folder permissions (tab)
Look at the last line. it should say writeable in green against all folders/files except for configuration.php

The update tables process DO NOT NEED the extra check in the config.
