SOLVED!

This worked for me and I hope it helps someone else. This is on version 1.1.7 so not sure if this will work on any other versions.

Directory /downloader/ set to 755
file /downloader/index.php set to 644

I use Cpanel and I had password protected the directory /Magento/ so that I wouldn’t have anyone stumbling on the site while it was being developed. I removed the password protection and the ‘Magento Connect Manager’ worked.

I figured it was something really simple but, for some reason this never occurred to me.

Thanks so much. I was looking for the proper permissions, you get them out of wack lol and its definitely a pain to get it back. Even being an old post. woot!

@theapokalypsis, If you are still struggling to get things back in whack, the Magento cleanup tool handles most of the heavy lifting in getting your permissions and such sorted out.

You can download it here:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/_media/groups/227/magento-cleanup2.zip

Unzip to the root of your Magento installation and then browse to http://yourdomain.com/magento/magento_cleanup.php and it will do the rest for you and provide feedback as to it’s progress.

I am getting the same error.

Whoops, our bad…

The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why.

* If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct.
* If you clicked on a link to get here, the link is outdated.

What can you do?
Have no fear, help is near! There are many ways you can get back on track with Magento Store.

* Go back to the previous page.
* Use the search bar at the top of the page to search for your products.
* Follow these links to get you back on track!
Store Home | My Account

This was the response which i am facing. Pls any one help me.

For me, when I went click the link on the Admin Panel, I get 404. Checked permissions and all were good. I just had to go to the downloader page manually by entering: downloader/index.php

Hope this helps someone out.

It’s almost funny in my case. In localhost it works although in the beginning it didn’t and in the web server it doesn’t work. I always get the 404 error in 1.4 no matter how I set permissions.

Finally I downloaded the clean up tool posted by skippybosco and it worked!

Maybe the problem is a combination of permissions and cache.

I’ve also removed secret kesy from URLs:

System -> Configuration. Look at your left, click on Admin -> click on Security -> Choose No at Add Secret Key to URLs.

This error is a continuation of other errors that seems to get overlooked if you keep all your magento files in a subfolder of your root folder. My Magento Connect url went 404 too. You can simply try to remember everytime that you need to put your magento folder name in the url

domain.com/magentofolder/downloader

or build a symlink to it in your root folder

cd /path/to/magento/
ln -s /path/to/magento/downloader downloader
