What you can try here is to delete the file downloader/connect.cfg. This file should be created the next time you load the Magento Connect section of the website.

I would always suggest taking a backup of files before deleting them though just for the case that something goes wrong.


Open phpmyadmin and go to your database's admin_user table. you can modify you admin credentials here.Click Edit against given data and modify username/password (be sure to select function MD5 for password) and click Go. You should be able to login using your new login credentials.


You will need to change your ftp/folder details in downloader/connect.cfg

This file holds your old credential, that's why it cannot login.


It's not safe to use Magento connect for installing extension , click this link for more information.

in the worst case, if you want immediate solution , Alternatively you can install the extension through FTP (like FileZilla). You can paste the extension key in this unofficial link and you can download the extension files. Let me know if you find any problems in this.

Note : As this is unofficial 3rd party site, there is no guarantee about security. but i tested many extensions, i did't faced any security problems....
