Have you tried changing the /downloader folder permissions to allow it to be writeable?

i.e. chmod 777

Same problem. I did chmod -R 777 downloader and still the same error: Unable to read saved settings. Please check Installation Path of FTP Connection.

Thanks for any direction.

BTW - Only thing that seems to work is this solution from Simple Servers:

Go inside your Magento folder & change permissions of ALL FILES & FOLDERS RECURSIVELY to “777”.

Here’s how to do this via your SSH client. Log in to your SSH account and then execute the following commands:

cd
find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
chmod 666 downloader/config.ini
You should now be able to access the Magento Connect Manager. When you have finished the installation/upgrade, you should reset the permissions by executing the following SSH commands:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
chmod o+w var media app/etc/use_cache.ser

I had the same problem.
no permission enought, errors when saving.. errors
I’m running Magento Community on:
OS: Ubuntu 12.04
My server is: localhost (no hosted)
I run with:
php 5.3.10

After undred of tries.. i put ALL my MAGENTO WEBSITE with 777 permissions:
chmod -R 777 /var/www/magento/

Then Magento Connect run as well..

Of course, I’ve to ripristinate old permissions.. but.. u know.. I’m on localhost xD

Hello,

I have had the same problem, but when I put correct data, there were no need to “open” installation directory to all.
I have had just put in
“Installation Path:” full path to root magento catalog installation as example: /home/www/magento/ (the slash at the end was needed!!!) and of course user and password with correct permissions to write.

Of course /var and /downloader have to be with 777 recurrent permissions.

Just found that out. If you already changed all permissions but you still get that error:

Install via SSH PHP-XML.

if you\’re using remi repo like me:

Install php-xml rpm package:

# yum --enablerepo=remi install php-xml
