Update of VirtueMart 2 with provided packages¶
The procedure to update VirtueMart 2 is the same as for the installation.
The update procedure will update all the files, and the tables if needed.
You should always update BOTH components: com_virtuemart.2.x.y.zip and com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip
You can also use the built in Akeeba Release System which is included in both components. In this case, you must also update BOTH components.
