There are modifications in core files (app/code/core/Mage/Admin/Model/Observer.php for example and so on), these files are saved with different line endings.

The solution is to compare your current files with original files from Magento distribution and understand why your files got changed. If you believe there should be no any changes in core files, you can simply replace app/code/core/Mage/Admin/Model/Observer.php, app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Request/Http.php and so on with original files from Magento distribution and re-run the patch.

In my case it is worked.Please try it this way.Please note, before replacing those files you must keep a back-up of each file.


You should upgrade to version this patch it's already included.

    Upgrading instead of patching is a really good way to put your e-commerce website out of commission. Patching (testing first on a development server) is an expedient to keep your website up and functional in a secure manner until you are sure your template and installed third party modules are tested fully compatible with the new version. Especially in the template, the difference between 1.8 and 1.9 can be a total show stopper. Any forum dealing with Magento is full of "OMG, I got a notice a new version was out, upgraded and now my website's down" messages. Commented May 19, 2015 at 15:46
