vQmod is required by most of our OpenCart extensions. To check if your vQmod is working, perform the following steps:
- Check vQmod version (minimum version 2.5.0 for OpenCart 2)
- Check if vqmod/vqcache/ folder exists
- Check if there are files in your vqmod/vqcache/ folder
- Delete all files in your vqmod/vqcache/ folder
- Refresh your web page on the browser
- Check if cache files are generated again
If cache files are not automatically generated, your vQmod might not be working.
Always remember to reinstall your vQmod if you have just upgraded your OpenCart.
