My shopping cart has been working ok until today. Although there may have been a joomla update since I last test purchased something in the cart. I now get the following;

Warning, the Safe Path is not accessible (does not exist or no permission), 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/content/22/10813822/vmfiles, use this link to the config
Key folder in safepath unaccessible

I never really new where to create the Safe Path folder when I first started using this version of joomla/virtuemart, as I couldn't locate /home/content/22/10813822/vmfiles. So I created Safe_Path in the root folder and in the configuration under templates, I set the path, although I had to set it to ../Safe_Path/ 

This seemed to work ok, until today. Can someone please help

Thanks, you may be correct. I have made a new safe path folder, and amended the path in settings. All now works again
