I just installed the combined package with Joomla and VirtueMart all in one package.

The installation seemed to go flawlessly, Joomla had me delete the install folder, then it took me to the VirtueMart control panel. The Joomla header was there right up until it took me to the control panel.

And there is not a Joomla control panel ANYWHERE. So I can't configure the CMS end of things at all.

When I make a change in the admin section for VirtueMart, the entire sidebar and header disappears, and I have to hit back on the browser to get back to anywhere I can navigate or save anything.

Has anyone had this happen? And know how to fix it?

This is on a linux server, php 5, new database mySQL 5. I installed with the recommended options, I installed the sample products, I have tried in both IE and FireFox.

Help!

Sounds like you have a bad install there. Best to delete all and try again!
