To link VMInvoice to your Virtuemart based website follows the steps below:
Unzip the file php.zip (received after purchase) into a folder, you will have the following 4 files:
- configuration. vm_invoice.1.1.php
- configuration. vm_invoice.2.0.php
Configuring php script
Edit the script file called configuration.vm_invoice.1.1.php or configuration.vm_invoice.2.0.php (depending on your Virtuemart version), changing the username and password as shown below.
Important: The username and password are required and are just for internal script use. They can be different than those of Joomla Administration account.
If your Virtuemart uses a different prefix then default for tables you can modify the line:
Replace the vm_ with the prefix in use on your Virtuemart site.
Note: do not modify any other line of the configuration file otherwise the system will not able to properly connect to your Virtuemart site.
Once modified the script file configuration.vm_invoice.1.1.php or configuration.vm_invoice.2.0.php you have to put the 3 files:
- configuration.vm_invoice.1.1.php or configuration.vm_invoice.2.0.php
on the Joomla main folder of your web site (typically where you have these files: index.php, index2.php, configuration.php, etc.) as shown on the picture.
Important: do not put both configuration.vm_invoice files but only the correct one according to Virtuemart version.
