OK, this was a big problem for me too, so for the benefit of others I’ll post how I fixed it. I’m running 1.4 on a Media Temple DV server. I was only able to see a blank page on the Magento Connect page of the admin.

Magento is installed under a subdirectory of my main site. It appears that gives Magento Connect problems. After trying lots of file permission settings on lots of folders, I followed the advice of this thread and created a symlink that makes it appear as if the ‘downloader’ directory runs from the root directory. That command was:
ln -s /var/www/vhosts/yourdomain.com/httpdocs/store/downloader /var/www/vhosts/yourdomain.com/httpdocs/downloader

My ‘downloader’ directory permissions are 777, but my downloader/index.php permissions are 644 (not sure if this affects anything, but it works for me).

NOW: don’t try to access the downloader in its actual location, use the symlink you set up. So I had to go to mydomain.com/downloader instead of mydomain.com/store/downloader. The page should appear like normal and you should be able to install extensions now. smile

I tried everything and no luck! Finally decided to try changing permissions on the entire downloader directory - and success! Had to set directory to 755

Same problem with mine.
Upgraded (Successfully, feels great) from 1.4.1.1 to 1.6.2.0
Downloader 404 error

! went to the downloader folder and changed the permissions to 755 and then also changed the permissions for downloader/index.php to 755

This did the trick.
Works great now.

All suggestions above work… However, just to complete the step in changing the /downloader folder permission to 755, sometimes you would still see a 404 page. If this happens, go inside the /downloader folder and look for “index.php”, you’ll notice its under permission 0666. Change it to 0644 and it will fix the problem. Same thing that would solve your problem after upgrading your magento and the admin and site is on “500 internal error”.

Thanks you guys. I hope this would help..

That’s odd. Switching to Joomla was the only thing that worked for me.. couldn’t be happier.
