Create virtuemart installer

Creating an installer package is very easy.

Just make a checkout of the complete SVN tree (checkout folder), export the virtuemart directory to another directory (VirtueMart_export folder).

After that cut the file VirtueMart_export\virtuemart\administrator\components\com_virtuemart\virtuemart.xml
and paste it to the installer root (virtuemart) folder.

The root directory of the installer should contain the directories

  • administrator
  • components
  • language

and the file

  • virtuemart.xml

Create a single Zip file from the folders administrator (backend), components (frontend), language, and the file virtuemart.xml.

Now your installer is ready.

Be aware in joomla 1.7 and higher you have to additionally copy the install folder to the root directory.
