I think the problem is in the ./downloader/pearlib/pear.ini - I found there the broken path to the /downloader folder - so i propose you to check it. I corrected it but now i recieve another error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method PEAR_Error::set() in /home/magento/domains/techno-shop.biz/public_html/downloader/Maged/Pear.php on line 111

Have you tried a different hosting? I remember facing something like this before and I moved to a new hosting and the problem just disappear.

sometimes there can be incompatibilities with the host you are using and the settings they have on their server. Either that or it a permissions error.

Remember that extension profiles also have a link for how to contact the developer. You may want to check with them if there are any known issues installing their extension.
