I have set the safe path folder and the invoices folder per the warning text but still get the error warning in the admin.
Warning, the Safe Path is empty, for safety reasons it is very important to create a folder in a path not accessible by an URL, create also a folder invoices in it to store your sensitive data secure. Our suggested path is for your system /home/randlieb/, use this link to the config

Any ideas? Thanks.

QuoteI have set the safe path folder
the safe path must be an absolute path. Can that be the reason?

and that path suggested (if u used it) is definitely not above the public folder - try

would be something like /home/randlieb/vmfiles

Wel duh! Did a search for the error warning and found a help page on VM site that explained it all. Thanks for the info on where to put the folder. Looks like it's working ok now.
