I am facing the issue of when I click on Magento Connect Manager it redirects to the homepage of my site with the URL:


My permission settings for downloader/index.php is 644 with version installed. I have:

  • Downloaded a fresh copy and reinstalled downloader to my store root directory

  • Deleted my var/cache and var/sessions

  • Deleted connect.cfg and cache.cfg from downloader folder

I've tried all suggestions I could find but none of them seem to work. Any help one this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, I wanted to install an extension, so I updated to version and downloader started working again. However the funny thing is I stopped installing extensions in downloader and install them directly through FTP, problem solved.
