I am working on magento 1.9.x. I have currently moved my local project instance to new server.
When I go to Connect Manager(
/downloader), it gives warning message saying,
"Warning: Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions.".
After some research, I had tried with putting 777 permissions to root directory, but due to which it gives Internal Server Error and none of the page works.
If I just put 777 to
downloader directory only, then Magento Connect Manager redirects to 404 page. I didn't understand why this happens on this server.
Is there any issue with server configuration or do I need to give permissions to any other directory as well?
