Hi,
I downloaded and installed the "JA Purity II" from
http://www.joomlart.com/forums/downloads.php?do=cat&id=145
I downloaded the "quickstart" verion that inclues the Joomla instalation.

When I get to the last sceen I click on the "Install Sample Data" button and I get the

Error: the XML response that was returned from the server cannot be processed

If I continue (without the Sample Data), I get the regular Joomla site (without the JA Purity).

is the download file ok?

otherwise you can navigate to the installation folder find the script that inserts the data and run it in phpmyadmin

you probably have to put jos_vm at the beginning of the inserts (table)

I tried without putting the 'jos_vm'' and I receive the following error (from MySQL).
So I assume that the tables already exist.
I don't know where should I put the 'jos_vm' in the SQL command.

give us the SQL error.

Delete all tables from the database and start again. There  are dependecies with the tables

I did that.
But now the Joomla site doesn't work.
It gives me an error that the appache is down (which is not).

are you working locallly?

Author

Commented:
Yes.
I think I will try to reinstall it, and keep the jos_users (and remove all the rest of the tables).
Maybe this will work!
