After upgrading a Joomla 1.5 site to a 2.5 site I would get “Failed to retrieve the Currency Converter XML document” on the shipping method page. I found the fix here.
- FTP’ed to the clients host and downloaded the following file.
- Opened it in dreamweaver and edited line 57.
var $document_address = ‘http://www.ecb.int/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml’;
var $document_address = ‘http://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/eurofxref/eurofxref-daily.xml’;
After that I didn’t get the error.
