Magento Connect not working - 404 error

The 1.2 upgrade has been causing me a lot of headaches, but I’ve finally worked my way through to this last one. I first upgrade using Magento Connect, and everything seemed to go smoothly. I had some problems with the checkout process and decided to use Magento connect - ‘mage all latest’ to try to get a better upgrade. This time, it uploaded again and started throwing 500 errors. I cleared these up by fixing permissions, but since then all I get when using Magento connect is 404 errors. I’ve reset permissions everywhere, uploaded the ‘downloader’ folder from a clean download, etc. Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks for any help!

I had this same issue, check your error logs. changing the perms of /downloader/index.php to 644 (from 666) fixed this issue for me.

what worked for me was removing .htaccess in /downloader/
then i had an error on cloning, so i put
ini_set (’zend.ze1_compatibility_mode’, 0);
in /downloader/index.php

Sorry if I am resurrecting an old topic, but haven’t been able to find an answer in my searches. One of the magento stores I am building is giving me problems in the magento connect area.
It seems to connect just fine, download ok, tell me everything installed the right way.
But when I then go to use what I supposedly downloaded, it isn’t there.

I am trying to get the iphone theme, so I can have a mobile version of the store in question.
Could someone help me if they have experienced this before.
Thanks,
Daniel

P.S. I am using magento 1.3.2.4 on a godaddy economy hosting plan for this particular store.

I had the same issue, but I had to set the permissions of the “download” folder to 755 and now it’s working.

It may be an issue with your hosting account. I had the same issue and nothing else was resolving the issue.

It turns out that Host Gator has a rule in the firewall that was causing the error. They whitelisted the rule for my account and the problem was resolved right away.

Hope that helps.

ini_set (’zend.ze1_compatibility_mode’, 0);

Just ask Hostgator to set that for you.

Regards,

Bob
