Installation of VirtueMart 2 with provided packages

1) Download the latest stable version of VirtueMart:
http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/files

2) Unzip the downloaded file
com_virtuemart.2.x.y.extract_first.zip
You will get a folder containing two components:
- com_virtuemart.2.x.y.zip which is actually the VirtueMart component
- com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip which is a component installing all the modules and plugins essential for VirtueMart.

3) Install first the component com_virtuemart.2.x.y.zip via the Joomla Extension manager

4) Install first the component com_virtuemart.2.x.y_ext_aio.zip via the Joomla Extension manager

You can find some help you http://docs.joomla.org/Help15:Screen.installer.15

After that install the file with prefix com_virtuemart_ext_aio to install all free plugins and modules in one row.

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.
