I'm trying to upgrade my installation of Magento to 1.9 via SSH, when I run

./mage mage-setup .

I receive:

Running initial setup...




channel-add: Channel 'community' already exist!

Any thoughts on what I should do next?

Checkout this forum post from others who have had your problem. http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/v/viewthread/217347/

Some possible solutions include:

in the magento directory :

./mage channel-delete community

./mage mage-setup

Then add the extension again via magento connect


Go to “downloader” folder and delete the file “cache.cfg”. Then go back to Magento Connect and retry

Try these on a non-production server first.
