Hi

I tried installing v2.0.6 using Magento Connect, using Magento 1.4.2

When I try to run the installer, i get an error with trying to chmod 666 the lib/minify/.tmp.htaccess file

The install fails, then totally breaks both my frontend and my admin.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks

I just had the same issue on my install 4th March 2011 on Speedster 2.0.6 and Magento version 1.4.1.1.

I am looking into this now. I notice this is a very recent version of the Speedster software. I will try looking through the code to find the source of the error and failing that I will get the key to install the previous version 2.0.5. (which I assume is more stable!)

My error currently is:

Downloading Fooman_Speedster-2.0.6.tgz ...
Starting to download Fooman_Speedster-2.0.6.tgz (68,007 bytes)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . ...done: 68,007 bytes

It appears the error is caused by the following lines in the package.xml file not completed (possibly due to a permissions problem) when copying across the .htaccess file

<dir name="minify">
..
<file name=".htaccess" md5sum="4d6b8833e4ccae2d2393dfeba369b894" role="magelib" />

<dir name="">
- <dir name="m">
<file name=".htaccess" md5sum="c1814ef21a60158bab01e91bfa5be19b" role="mageskin" />

The installer just copies files across so you will need to copy these across manually which means:

1. Copy from <your magento home dir>downloader/pearlib/download/Fooman_Speedster-2.0.6/m/.htaccess
to <your magento home dir>/skin

2. Copy from <your magento home dir>downloader/pearlib/download/Fooman_Speedster-2.0.6/minify/.htaccess
to <your magento home dir>/skin

Worth checking the following permissions are set:

<your magento home dir>/lib/minify to 755
<your magento home dir>/lib/minify/m.php to 755
<your magento home dir>/var/minifycache to 755

Then follow the steps in The Fooman troubleshooting guide to generate your files http://bit.ly/cF1ZSJ

I hope that helps!

Update.

I decided to ditch the install and restore my magento_home from the pre-installation backup as it was taking up too much time to troubleshoot.

I then installed version 2.0.5 and it installed with no errors.

I changed

/lib/minify to 755
/lib/minify/m.php to 755
/var/minifycache to 755

Running the site through gtmetrix gave the following figures:

Before 5.59s.

After 5.33s

anyone having issues with the error

lib/minify/.tmp.htaccess to 666 chmod() [function.chmod]:

please try version 2.0.7 and let me know if that works better.
