Re: Error on extension install

In cases like this, it's important to paste the name of extension or URL that you've used - it will help us with debugging process. There are a couple of reasons why it could go wrong.

 

In order to overcome this situation, you can just unpack zip archive into your Magento project, clear the cache and enjoy.

 

In order to download extension, just paste connect url into textbox field on following page:
