Re: Cannot connect to host



1. Please cross check the download key if it is correct.

2. Also check under the settings tab, if the Magento version is in stable state.

Re: Cannot connect to host

Appears to have been down for the past 4 days, been trying to install extensions ever since.


I get the following error:

Cannot connect to host:


When going to the extension URL i get:

Oops! An Error Occurred

The server returned a "404 Not Found".


These are modules I have installed fine in the past, I was actively installing modules a week ago.

Re: Cannot connect to host

I guess this problem happen when you are running magento in localhost. Can you try it on a shared hosting?

Re: Cannot connect to host

I am also getting the same error.


I am on Magento Connect Manager ver., using FTP deployment, running on Stable state.

When I try to install an extension, for example:


I get this error-

community/Beecoder_Beeshopy: Cannot connect to host:


Also if i try using SSH Terminal and running this command to install:

./mage install Mage_Downloader


I get this error-


install: Cannot connect to host:


Does anyobody know what's going on? Thanks



Re: Cannot connect to host

Try ping-ing that host from your server, ideally using ssh. If that is working fine, it may be worth checking your server curl version, I think there was some issue with one of the more recent versions.
