I have a question though. You say not to use automatic updater (I don't even know where to find that anyway). But how am I to replace the VM 2.0.0 that I have installed. Do I uninstall that and then install the latest 2.0.1 version? Do I also have to delete all the modules and plugins related to VM before the installation?

I have some demo products and variants made also for testing. Do I have make them again in the new version or is there a way to update without any destruction of products and custom fields etc.
The (automatic) updater link is on the VirtueMart Control Panel. It is a bit misleading, but there have been frequent warnings - it will only update (or downgrade!) to a RELEASED version - 2.0.1 is NOT a released version.

Use the Joomla Extension Manager to update from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1x.  It may be possible to use the Browse approach, but the host site may not allow it.  The alternative is to copy the new 2.0.1e files into the siteroot/tmp directory and click on "Install from Directory" - do this for the main update and then the aio part.  Ver 2.0.1x is an update, so you do not have to uninstall 2.0.0.

Check on your demo products.


I had a go before I got your reply and it updated over the 2.0.0. - sorted.
However although the domo products are showing. It is saying image unavailable and the drop down list with 4 variants I had are also gone. But if I check the product in the back end. The images Large and thumbs are there and so too are the variants!

Milbo, please, can you leave product main picture CSS resize in default template?
Thank you!

2.0.1f  didn't solve the problem..



i get a loop when i order something.. and the order will not show up in the order list



love virtuemart when it's 10000% stable like in version 4.5 in the year 2015


Can I suggest some cosmetic changes? To tell the truth they were also two changes for usability.

First is in the product orders configuration:
The checkbox must go before the label.

Second is in the toolbar in the admin: the orders of buttons is very "crazy"... i have to be a sniper to click the "new" button, that is the most used button.
Joomla have a more "usable" order. I think is a right thing to follow this order.

Third: please implement save&new and save as copy in the product and category editing page!
If I remember correctly in older versions of VM, these functions were added and good working (at least in full screen mode)

Joomla! 2.5.16 & VM 2.0.24b


I upgraded to VM 2.0.1.F with Joomla 2.5.1, but I still cannot checkout using PayPal.  This is a critical problem that customer cannot buy on my site. 


Again, I will vote on this as well. PayPal does not work in the newest release of VM 2.0.1f and J! 1.7.3. Dev Team... did you even test this before releasing?


when i add as guest..

and i forget something i get red block..

country doesn't get a red block.. and if i don't fill in i don't get a error of it.. it jumps to a other page.

country has * ..

Using Joomla 1.7.5 and VM 2.0.1 f

Just updated my server - Paypal worked as is should  it worked in e as well.
( it would not work before for me - because I was using products that I'd created for different groups.

The problem for me was that I though I had to choose a group for every product - now I do not.

* I am using a real paypal site to test - I just made a product $1.00 to see how it goes.

* sorry this is really not helping some -

* could you again describe exactly what happens in paypal.
* do you actually see the option come up as a choice?
* do you purchase one product ( what currency?)
* or do you get right to the end it gets to the paypal site and you pay and then wait?
* For me remember I rolled my site back to 1.7.5 - I'm certainly not updating until I see some of you happy with the paypal situation in Joomla 2.5 +


Hi John,

I'm using Joomla 2.5.1 and VM 2.0.1.f.  Here's the details: With one product in the cart in US $, I press the Confirm Order button to check out, it goes to PayPal, but then PayPal immediately gives this message: Unable to process payment. Please contact the merchant as the shipping address provided by the merchant is invalid, and the merchant has requested that your order must be shipped to that address.

This exact product works fine start to finish with Joomla 2.5.1 and VM2.0.0.  Something changed between VM 2.0.0 and 2.0.1. 

I do not have any shopper groups set for the products.  As an experiment since you mentioned shopper groups, I tried setting the shopper group for one product to -default- and then -anonymous-, but it gets the same PayPal error for both groups.


I get the same error with paypal.
I am running the new version on joomla 2.5


OK cas ,

I'm not the expert here but this message needs to be posted in this forum. Almost exactly.
The reason being is that : the paypal options and this message appears in this forum-read by another programmer - the actual one that writes that code, in paypal.

Most people are still looking for this mysterious "address" to try and chnge it but I think that this message is decribing the wrong thing - the address is just an email link.
* the product is linked to the customers purchase is linked to his normal shopping group, which is linked to a "postal address" - but I'm sure the computer does not care about the actual postal address - unless the post code/zip code is incorrect.
* It is still looking for an email link.
* What you got is what I got - the first time round and I simply chnge the email address.

Look - put your message in the above forum and see if soemone other trhan me can help.

Just check for me that the vendor is also set to default "just the shopper "group - go into users. -


Hi John,

I'll post my message in the other topic.  Hope it helps.

I tried changing the email, but it didn't help.

The vendor shopper group is set to -default-.


Milbo, please, ansver me!

Can you leave product main picture CSS resize in default template?
