"Direct Access to this location is not allowed"
« on: May 28, 2010, 18:00:19 pm »
Hi all .. I'm about to pull my hair out here, I've tried the full package install into a fresh install of 1.5 .. that didn't work, I could not get the installer to install from inside the admin panel

then I tried a remote install ... didn't work

The after all that I tried the manual install, unpacked and copied all the files up to the server by means of FileZilla

Once doen, logged into the admin panels and did as it said in the instruction guide

used the following as instructed
http://www.your_site.com/administrator/index2.php?option=com_virtuemart

Then . grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Direct Access to this location is not allowed.

PLEASE PLEASE can someone help me !!!

Thanks
Richard

Sounds like a very simple file permissions problem. You may need to open the file permissions whilst you install and then revert them back once the install has been successful. Remember to revert back all files to 644 and your folders to 755.

If you are still having problems installing Virtumart it my be worth trying the Joomla Virtuemart Bundle.

You can download it from here:

Its the last option under VirtueMart 1.1.4 (stable)

This was solved but was down to a server configuration problem caused by the hosting company.

I cant remember the fix tbh!
