I have spent two full days now on trying to install this module, but so far no success.
I have a Joomla 1.5.8 installation and try to install Virtuemart.
First I tried to install the full (Joomla + Virtuemart) "down.pngComplete Package for Joomla! 1.5" into my Joomla, wich ofcourse didn't work.
Then I found the right installer "VirtueMart_1.1.2-COMPLETE_PACKAGE.j15"
The file is too big to upload the Package File, so I read about the manual instruction.
I unzipped the file: "VirtueMart_1.1.2-COMPLETE_PACKAGE.j15" and uploaded it with my FTP application to the /tmp/ folder.
Then after more careful reading of this forum, I realized there were still several zip files within the unzipped "VirtueMart_1.1.2-COMPLETE_PACKAGE.j15" fileNOTE:
I really wonder why there are zipped files within a ZIP file, since this would not make the whole zip file any smaller and just adds more work when unzipping the file.
After unzipping all the subfolders as well, I uploaded everything again to the /tmp/ folder
I uploaded the following three folders:com_virtuemart_1.1.2.j15
Then I use the "Install from Directory" function and select "/tmp"
What I get is:
* Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package.
* Path does not have a valid package.
Warning: opendir(/tmp/fs_sessions): failed to open dir: Permission denied in /home/content/html/test/libraries/joomla/filesystem/folder.php on line 391
Warning: readdir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in /home/content/html/test/libraries/joomla/filesystem/folder.php on line 392
Warning: closedir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in /home/content/html/test/libraries/joomla/filesystem/folder.php on line 418
Unable to find install package
I then read about the permissions of the folders, so I changed the permissions of the following folders to 777:
and all folders and subfiles of libraries/joomla/filesystem/
I must be doing something wrong still, so please help...
