I am unable to upgrade through the Magento Connect (is that true that I have to set all the permissions for all the files and folders in Magento to 777 in order for me to be able to upgrade? Is it possible to do that temporarily and then reset it back after the upgrade?). Anyway - so I was attempting to upgrade through SSH. I followed the steps but here is what happens:
I’m trying to put the following command (pear install magento-core/Mage_All_Latest) through putty and it gives me an Error.... I have access to the jail shell access. The error message is :
PHP Warning: Unknown (): Unable to load dynamic library
open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
Attempting to discover channel “magento-core"…
unknown channel “magento-core” in “magento-core/Mage_All_Latest”
invalid package name/package file “magento-core/Mage_All_Latest”
Cannot initialize ‘magento-core/Mage_All_Latest’, invalid or missing
Package “magento-core/Mage_All_Latest” is not valid
The reply from the support of my hosting provider was:
You will need to contact the script developer and ask them what the problem could be. You may not be able to install this with only jailed shell, and unfortunately we can’t give you full shell access on a shared server.
I know there are a lot of smart people out here. Would anyone of you know?
