Hi, Please can someone advise which version of Joomla and Virtuemart I should install on my site for the online shop,
I want to install versions that are the most stable and highly compatible with minimum bugs - As I keep having a wide variety of issues with several installations I have tried.


Thanks in advance for any advice :)

the recommendation depends if your site is multi-lingual

single language J3.4.3/VM3.0.9.6
multi-lang         J2.5.28/VM3.0.9.6

So do I download the VM3 from this link - http://virtuemart.net/community/download-virtuemart

Is this the correct Virtuemart version you mentioned?



Thanks again for your help

Is 3.0.9.6 stable?

The confusion of the user is reasonable as he visited the download link of the official site

haven't seen any negative reports on 3.0.9.6 so far

I have 3 sites running on it without probs

I don't know when the test versions are deemed valid for the official release sorry..

The d/l from the "official" link includes com_tcpdf_1.0.0.zip in the package. But 3.0.9.6 is better IMHO than 3.0.9

  • VirtueMart Version: Always latest Stable
The latest stable is 3.0.8, the downloads in the repository should mention that next to each file so the users do not get confused.
