Title: problems with the all in one installer VM2.0.12
Post by: kobiashi on October 05, 2012, 12:21:23 pm
hi all,
        i have just installed the VM2 AIO into my web site which i am developing, i am running joomla 2.5.4 and VM 2.0.12, everything was fine, i was looking for VM payment and found it was in the AIO, but when i installed it, its radically alltered my site, the shopping cart no longer updates i have to refresh the page, and i have a home and a product link on the top menu bar, when i go to the product link and select catergory then click on a product it displays it on the home page not the product page, so it displays the product but with everything else on the home page, i.e slideshow, featured products, etc.

any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,

Try to download the tar.gz files and try it again from your joomla extension manager to install them manually. You can download the tar.gz files here: http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/files
or maybe you have a javascript conflict on your site, examine it with firebug: http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=102850.0
Also take a look over here: http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki/General_JS-Problems_with_templates_and_jQuery and here: http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki/JavascriptCSS_Template_Overrides_and_Avoiding_Conflicts_between_Libraries

btw, what's your PHP version?

Regards

hi thanks fior the reply,

                                    ok i have tried all of the examples you gave me and nothing worked, i tried to install the tar.gz files and it kept saying could not find xml files, instead i installed i from the directory, by unzipping the file, i tried unchecking the virtuemart jquery library and caused more errors, checked it again and had no errors on page, i`m really stumped and its really frustrating, i am using php version 5.3.8.

Hello,

You will download the following files:

http://dev.virtuemart.net/attachments/download/490/com_virtuemart.2.0.12_extract_first.targz.zip
You will extract it and inside you will find to new tar.gz files, one for the core, one for the AIO extensions.
After that under your joomla extensions manager browse and install first the com_virtuemart.2.0.12.tar and after install the com_virtuemart.2.0.12_ext_aio.tar

As you have mention above you are using joomla 2.5.x, am i right?

Post your results.

Regards

hi,
   keep getting fatal error maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded, i have read that WAMP does not support tar files, do you know if this is true?
Title: Re: problems with the all in one installer VM2.0.12
Post by: kobiashi on October 07, 2012, 18:25:25 pm


i`ve managed to resolve the fatal error and installed the tar files,

to recap the problem,      i have two links on my top menu , home page and a product page, home page is linked to virtuemart frontpage and product page is linked to virtuemart catergory page.   when i click on a catergory on the product page it takes me to locahost.../index.php/cat-1, not localhost/.../index.php/products/cat-1.

when i just install the VM2.tar.gz i dont have this problem however when i install the VM2.aio.tar.gz. i get this problem, but i need the payment system.

also i have noticed i have the VM links on the left i.e VM_catergory VM_products, VM_currency etc. when i click on the catergory under VM_catergory it does the same thing takes me back to the home page not to the product page.


so is there possibly a problem with the aio, in which case is there anywhere i can get the payment mods and plugins downloads,

or is the VM_links affecting it, in which case is there a way to set them up correctly.

Hello,

I am not familiar with wamp, i am using xampp. The error you receive related to php cause the execution is bigger from the one the php configuration file have (or you need to increase it). So you could edit your php.ini file and change the following value

max_execution_time = 360

you could also increase the memory size by change the value

memory_limit = 128M

Sounds like you need to make a completely fresh install. Get com_virtuemart.2.0.12_extract_first.targz.zip from http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/files and unpack it locally to give the two components.

On a new install of Joomla 2.5.7 install first com_virtuemart.2.0.12.tar.gz when that is installed, before doing anything else, immediately install com_virtuemart.2.0.12_ext_aio.tar.gz    - then start to configure the store, set up menus etc.

Do not select any form of SEF until the site is tested with products, menu links work etc.

hi,
   i am now on my fourth fresh install and every time it is the same no extra plugins or modules and even on the joomla default template its always the same. i am completely stuck......

Hello,

 I am suggesting place your category menu item virtuemart frontpage menu. If that breaks your concept you could create that category menu under virtuemart menu and a second top level menu point to the category menu under virtuemart, can you test  it?
Do you have SEF enabled? Disable it and test again.

Hi,

Disable SEF for a moment on both joomla and vm.

PS: Please publish a menu item called or example Virtuemart to point to virtuemart front-end and then a menu item products under virtuemart menu.

Thanks
