Failed to retrieve the Currency Converter XML document
« on: August 06, 2010, 15:38:24 pm »
I use VM 1.1.4 stable version
The ordering process doesn't work correctly.

The error messages are the followings:
Error: connect() timed out!
Error: Failed to retrieve the Currency Converter XML document.

It seems it has a problem with currency converter. I don't want use currency converter, because I would like to use the price in USD. So I disabled the currency modul, and set only USD on configuration panel. But it hasn't solved the problem.
Who can help me?

I wanted to continue with this topic because it seems that nobody replied to it and it is something that still happens with the VirtueMart 1.1.6 Stable version.

In my case I receive exactly the same messages:

I am using Zeolite II template, but also with Larix, Beez, Mesolite II and other templates occurs the same. So there shouldn't be a problem with the templates but with the VirtueMart installation because the messages are shown with the products in the shop side of the joomla page.

I would like that somebody could help us bringing some light to this issue and if possible to come up with a precise and detailed instruction on how to fix it. My knowledge in programming (as many of us) is rather low so I would appreciate that the instructions could be detailed. I use VirtueMart since a while and don't have experience but I would like to run my e-shop as smoothly as possible.

Please some help would be nicely appreciated.
Regards,

Is the vendor currency the same as product currency?
To check it:
- Go to Store/Edit store and verify "Currency Display Style" content.
- Go to your(s) product(s) and verify currency used by "Product Price".
They should have the same currency.

Note: This error is independent of currency module which is only used as a Joomla module to allow a customer to change the currency displayed in store.

Otherwise another solution may help you...

You can ignore webservices calls from virtuemart and avoid some unwanted situations and errors in doing this :
1- create a file called "Nconvertion.php" in /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/currency/

2- paste this code within it :

<?php

if(

!defined( '_VALID_MOS' )

&&

!defined( '_JEXEC' ) )

die( 'Direct Access to '.basename(__FILE__).' is not allowed.' );

class convertNOP {
  function convert( $amountA, $currA='', $currB='' ) {
    return $amountA;
  }
}

?>

3- Go to virtuemart administration : Configuration > Global > Core Settings > Core Settings and choose "Nconvertion.php" in the list.


This was given here "http://libre-d-esprit.thinking-days.net/2009/03/rendre-virtuemart-utilisable-en-mode-offline/"

Hi everybody,

I'm experiencing the same error, and mine gets deeper.
Although on the back end my currency is correctly set to EUR, both on items price and in shop config, in the front end the currency doesn't appear (item's price is only a number, without the currency symbol)

As if that was not enough, when a customer proceed to the paypal checkout, the currency shown by PayPal is $ instead of EUR.

I've tried both solutions on this page, and i get back this:


Fatal error: Call to a member function convert() on a non-object in /home2/kitedumm/public_html/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_product.php on line 2217


Please help me!

Dear friends, if you get this error it may be caused by CURL error, insufficient write permissions for the XML file or connection timeout to the ECB server. We've updated the file here:

The guy above is right. In English:

Edit file: administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/currency/convertECB.php
and change the url: http://www.ecb.int/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml
to: http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml

The error is caused due to address change. If you go to http://www.ecb.int/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml you can see that it redirects you to the second address. Probably downloader does not automatically follow redirects, so it is not doing the same as your browser.

    FTP’ed to the clients host and downloaded the following file.
    administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/currency/convertECB.php
    Opened it in dreamweaver and edited line 57.

    var $document_address = ‘http://www.ecb.int/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml’;

    to be

    var $document_address = ‘http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml’;

After that I didn’t get the error

Hello All. Thanks for topic.
I have small question. I have some plugin and want to use function convert from this object or get currency rate. How i can call this?
