I have a problem. My site doesn't use ssl for now. When i try to install an extension from magento connect by using magento connect manager it just returning "please wait" screen and after a while its showing No releases for 'Clarion_Customerattribute', skipping for example.

I tried everything and i get this error about all extension, i tried a lot different extensions.

I tried to delete cache.cfg and connect.cfg from "download" folder.

What you guys can suggest?

I also tried installing extension with ssh and setted the permissiıon of mage-setup to 550. This is the screen i get after these steps.

  • Hey, I just realized my other store is not installing extension also. Another store, another server all different stacks. Is magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/ has a problem? Or am i complete idiot to do same mistakes in 2 servers :)

  • What happens when you paste the links from Magento Connect in your webbrowser?Could be either they are having issues or your are having a DNS issue.

To resolve this problem just navigate to Settings and find Magento Connect Channel Protocol:

You have to change it from HTTP to FTP!

This will resolve your problem.

Tested and working, please if it works for you mark my answer as an answer for your question!

  • I've checked in settings, there is no option for FTP, just HTTPS and HTTP. Any ideas?

What do you have in the second tab (Settings) on the download page? A lot of extension on connect are listed as beta in stead of "Stable".

If you change the state to "Beta" most extensions will install just fine.

  • You are right but i also tried this before. I changed beta, alpha, stable. It didn't worked. Damn.
