Installation of VirtueMart 2 with provided packages¶
The installation of virtuemart is seperated in two parts. This page assumes that you downloaded 1 package like virtuemart***_extract_first.zip. This file contains two files one name has the prefix com_virtuemart_ and the other has the prefix mod_virtuemart_allinone_.
The file with the prefix com_virtuemart_ is the core and should be installed first. This page should help you http://docs.joomla.org/Help15:Screen.installer.15
After that install the file with prefix mod_virtuemart_allinone_ to install all free plugins and modules in one row.
For updating just do a normal install. The installation file works also for updates. You can also use the built in Akeeba Release System.
