I'm very new to Mageneto and am attempting to install the CE 188.8.131.52 on a Godaddy shared Linux server. I tried to use the downloader.php as per the installation instructions and everything worked fine until entering the starting the actual product download. I entered the FTP credentials but would get a 503 error when starting the download. I know the credential information is correct as I gave up and am uploading the entire CE package via fireftp. I am also able to gain FTP access via a web browser (using the configured username/password). The question is... exactly in what format are credentials entered (i.e. ftp://ftp.server.com, ftp.server.com, server.com, ftp://server.com...)?
Oh... I'm supposed to introduce myself...
My name is Mike. I like short walks along the beach... favorite color is 'clear'.
Thanks for the help!
