I am using Magento CE 1.9 and trying to install security patch SUPEE-1533 but it's giving me this error:

Checking if patch can be applied/reverted successfully...

ERROR: Patch can't be applied/reverted successfully.

  • Out of curiosity, have you modified any of the Magento core files being patched? The messages are indicating that the patch didn't succeed (you already guessed that) and it's saving the details of the rejections in each of those .rej files it warns you about above... What version of Magento are you patching and what .sh file did you use to patch it? Commented Apr 24, 2015 at 7:40
  • I have used this patch "PATCH_SUPEE-1533_EE_1.13.x_v1-2015-02-10-08-18-32.sh" file which is for EE i think but i am using CE and it always gives me patch for EE and not CE.Can you help me resolve this?

  • I noticed the same thing when I downloaded the patch for our CE installations. The file is named PATCH_SUPEE-1533_EE, so don't worry about that part. What version of Magento were you running pre-patch? And are you using a source control repository like git or mercurial or svn in case you need to back out your changes?

  • This sounds like the system doesn't have write access to the files. Or the files have been modified by hand. If the auto patching doesn't work. You can review the patch file contents and patch manually. Commented Apr 24, 2015 at 11:17

The patch 1533 is already applied in Magento CE 1.9.1. However, 5344 is not, and should still be manually applied.


You can find the all patches of magento to install without SSH https://www.milople.com/blogs/ecommerce/applying-magento-security-patch.html


I also encountered the same issue. The messages imply that the patch is already applied or maybe it's irrelevant for the community edition. In any case, it is possible to revert the patch and reinstall it to make sure it is applied. I tried this on my server. Don't know if it is really installed right now, but I'm pretty sure that it didn't break anything.

To remove the patch

sh PATCH_SUPEE-1533_EE_1.13.x_v1-2015-02-10-08-18-32.sh -R

To reinstall it

sh PATCH_SUPEE-1533_EE_1.13.x_v1-2015-02-10-08-18-32.sh

Hope this helps.
