I found out that it adds the admin “folder” when it shouldn’t. When you access the Magento Connect Manager it should go to http://www.url.com/downloader...., but instead it displays http://www.url.com/admin/downloader. So if I just removed the “admin” I can access it just fine. I’m using a custom “admin” folder (so it’s actually not admin, but a custom name I gave it) so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it?
Either way, it’s easy to get around. I’m just so thrilled that this extension solved the issue on my site. What a huge relief. Thanks!
1) Login to admin section by using the URL
2) then go to “System >> Configuration >>Web >> Search Engines Optimization”
Use Web Server Rewrites : YES
3) Go to “System >> Configuration >>Web >>Secure”
Use secure URL Frontend: YES
4)Then create the .htaccess file under your the magento installed folder.
If the magento installed under document root ( /home/username/public_html) then add follogig rules into .htaccess file
