[SOLVED] Warning: Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions

You might get this error when you go to Magento Connect Manager (System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager) of your Magento installation. This means that Magento Connect is unable to write files to your server.

Warning: Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions.

The solution to this problem is to set all folders permission to 777.

Go to your installation root folder and run the following command (You should have access to SSH on your server to run this command):-

find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

Now you will not get the error on Magento Connect Manager and you will be able to install any extension from there.

Don’t forget to change the folder permission to 755 after you are done with installing your extension from Magento Connect Manager.

To do this, run the following commands:-

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
chmod 777 var var/.htaccess app/etc
find var -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
chmod -R 777 media

Hope it helps. Thanks.

  • Magento Weblink needs make read write to the Magento details to be able to set up new improvements or update the program to a new version. You can change your file/folder read write either thru your FTP Client OR via a SSH customer. Log in to your SSH concern and then execute the following commands:
    find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} ;
    chmod 666 downloader/config.ini
    You should now be able to availability the Magento Weblink Manager. When you have finished the installation/upgrade, you should completely totally reset the read write by doing the following SSH commands:
    find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
    find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;
    chmod o+w var media app/etc/use_cache.ser
