I just went into the Joomla database and changed the 'data' field of the jml_session table from TEXT into MEDIUMTEXT and this seems to solve the problem for me.

This seem to worked for me.. no crash for more than 30 products

People, seems I have found what to do exact.



Site-Global configuration-Sessions setings-Session handler
Change from "Database" to "None".

Please, make the same and write in forum! Is it really resolved now?

Will a cookie be used instead?
With kind regards,

Cookie? It seems, with changing to "none" nothing bad happened with my site, but cart really works now! I can add even 50 items if I want...

when I set to 'none' it throws me out of admin and I'm unable to get back in - had to change setting back to 'database' in config file

having the same problem, need to be able to add about 250 products to cart, but keeps emptying while I'm busy...
the database change to "mediumtext" seems to do the trick though!

Using the tools "update tables if necessary" would have done the trick for you

Hi everyone,

Once again everyone seems to think this is a VM issue. I'm sorry to say, but it isn't. Don't blame VM, blame Joomla!. That's what's causing the session issue.

Everyone knows that VM is built on top of the Joomla! framework. Setting the session storage to none rather than database should fix the problem. Beyond that it could be a server/machine issue as Milbo pointed out. If the session handler configuration doesn't work for you, the next step is to consult your hosting provider.

But ultimately, please remember the separation between Joomla! and VirtueMart. Joomla! affects VirtueMart, but not the other way around.

If you are using Joomla 1.0.15, you are probably using Virtuemart 1.1.x and you posted in the wrong forum section. If you just mistyped the Joomla version and you are using Joomla 1.5.x and Virtuemart 2.x, the "Update tables if necessary" is one of the large buttons at "Tools and Migration".
