Getting the files
Download the latest stable version of VirtueMart from this location:
At the top of the download page you will also notice test versions. These may include new features and bug fixes as well as some new bugs. Using these versions on a life internet site is not recommended. Please use test versions for testing only!
Unzip the downloaded file com_virtuemart.2.x.y.extract_first.zip
This will extract two more zip-files:
- com_virtuemart.2.x.y.zip – which holds the main VirtueMart component.
- com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip – which holds all modules and plugins essential for VirtueMart.
Second, install the component com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip (aio = all-in-one) via the Joomla Extension manager. This will install the free modules and plugins supplied by the Virtuemart Team all at once. (Doesn’t include any modules and plugins from 3rd party delvelopers)
