I have upgraded from magento 1.6 to 1.8 via magento-connect and now I have the admin links problem. Can’t edit cms pages, taxes, products, etc) . All the rest in the admin area works fine.
I’ve read many posts regarding this problem and tried with no success suggestions such as:
- manually uploading the 2 folders “Adminhtml” in /app/code/core/Mage/ AND /app/design (overwriting all files & folders);
- changing the permissions in /js/index.php file
- doing magento-core/Mage_All_Latest in Magento Connect
Does anyone have other ideas or suggestions on how to solve this problem? I would really appreciate all your help.
That did the work!! I did have to change permissions to 777 in some folders to be able to install the extensions, because I was getting this error when trying to install them:
ERROR: failed to write /home/qualalba/public_html/loja/skin/adminhtml/default/default/images/tree_icons/.tmpjoin.gif: copy(/home/qualalba/public_html/loja/skin/adminhtml/default/default/images/tree_icons/.tmpjoin.gif) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied
But now the links are working. Still haven’t understood if changing permissions to 777 constitutes a security breach or not, but that’s another story.
