This is an old revision of the document!

If you access Magento Connect and it’s telling you to check the write permissions (see image below), there’s a simple way to fix this.

Open up your SSH client and go to the directory where Magento is installed. Once you are there, copy and paste the following command:

find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

That will change the permissions on all the directories to writable, and you should be able to use Magento Connect now.
