Magento Connect Manager: Temporary Change to Channel Protocol


We are upgrading the Magento Connect server environment. During this time, HTTP must be used to upload extensions, rather than FTP.

We’re in the process of upgrading the Magento Connect server environment. For a brief period of time, it will not be possible to use FTP to communicate with Magento Connect. If your Magento Connect Manager settings currently use FTP channel protocol, please take a moment to change it to HTTP. We’ll let you know as soon as you can resume using FTP.
