After I updated to Joomla 3.8 I get the following error on the backend and frontend:
On the frontend it's the white screen with the red box.
On the backend it's a white screen with the admin menu, the error and a button to go back to the Control panel.

QuoteAn error has occurred.

    0 Unable to load Cache Storage: vmfile

This error appears on most pages regarding VM:
- Entering the Control panel (Though categories/products/configuration... are displayed)
- After saving i.e. products (edits are saved, but error is displayed)
- After saving Joomla's Global configuration (edits are saved), other Joomla items seem to work fine.

- pages that display any VM component or module display the above error (except the cart module)
pages without VM items display fine.

It's on a localhost (MAMP) so I can't give a link.
Joomla 3.8.0 (Updated from 3.7.5)
VM 3.2.4 (Updated from 3.2.2 (updated before the Joomla update))

Tried it on a clean install, that seems to have no issues.

What can I do to fix this issue?

Thank you.


Are you having issues site wide or just when you're accessing VM?


They changed the cache, so I have to adjust vmfiles for j3.8, thats all. You can disable it by editing the configuration.php file,.. "vmfiles" to "files"

Thank you very much.

I had to change it to 'file' for it to work.

Next step updating the live site...
