Can’t upgrade via the Downloader - getting an 500 error

Hi all

I am stuck at version and I would very much like to upgrade to the newer versions.

I am on a Windows / Apache server and when I insert “magento-core/Mage_All_Latest” and press Install it runs for some minutes and then it just gives an 500 error. Even though Apache is running in debug mode nothing is written to the log about the 500 error.

If I just want to reinstall a single extension and I press Commit it goes well. Files are actually overwritten on the server, so something is working.

So how do I get the upgrade to work via the Downloader to work?

I have set files and folders on 777 for now (will set them right when the downloader works)

Thank you grin
