I've had people asking how to do this update. The Virtuemart update how-to is maddenly unavailable on the Virtuemart website, but it used to be there. As I recall, it said to uninstall VM and then install the update. Do NOT do that!
Here is how to update Virtuemart -
First, and foremost - backup your files and database!
Upload the compressed patch file to your site's Joomla root folder. Then, using your hosting control panel functions, expand the file. Finally, delete the .zip file.
If you do not have an Expand function on your hosting control panel (you should host with ok-joomla-hosting.com!) you can expend the patch onto your local computer, then upload the files and folders to your Joomla website.
