Just installed Magento for the first time locally on a mac via phpMyAdmin. Used this speedy 1:43 video to figure out how to do it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWOW6futhVQ
The site is up locally @ http://127.0.0.1:8888/ and
/admin is also working allowing me to login to the portal.
The next goal is to access Magento Connect Manager to download an extension but when I navigate to
Magento Connect >
Magento Connect Manager and then put in the same credentials used in the admin panel the result is "Invalid user name or password".
One verification I've made is making sure the the
Administrators role has
Resource Access but it's still showing the same error.
So my question is, might you know of anything that may need to be done for a fresh installation to access the Magento Connect Manager, or any ideas on how I may troubleshoot the issue?
Thank you for reading!
