Magento Connect - Package Install - Challenge Question

Hi,


When i try to update extensions in Magento Connect/Magento Connect Manager or try to install a new package I receive following error


"CONNECT ERROR: Unsupported resource type"

 

More precise:

Checking dependencies of packages
Starting to download ND_Alphabank-0.1.1.tgz ...
...done: 13,133 bytes

CONNECT ERROR: Unsupported resource type
Please check the output frame for errors and refresh the page to retry changes.

 

I have just now moved servers and beforhand there was not problem, only now suddendly after 1:1 file transfer.

Anybody want to take the challenge in answering this?

 

Phil

HI,

I believe your issue will be covered by the following thread. It is caused by having a newer PHP version than your current Magento supports:
