Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

Hi, I am new to the development side of Magento. I just wanted to add an extension into the system on ver 1.7.0.2. So was going to use Magento Connect Manager.
In the System menu there is no Magento connect Menu item.

 

I have googled this problem with no suceess.

 

What have I done wrong?

Re: Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

Hi blueHiveMedia,

 

So you don't have a access to the System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager, as far as I can read in your post ?

 

How about if you login to your admin (as regular), and then in the browser open a new tab, and adding /downloader/ at the end off you admin url.

My normal testsite is : http://www.coolmagento.dk/admin

Connect is: http://www.coolmagento.dk/downloader/

 

Can you get access then ?

If you are promted with login, the credidentials are the same as for your regular login to your admin.

Re: Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

Hi Kent, thanks for that. All issues have been resolved. 

 

The actual problem came from the permissions area of the system. The retiring programmer had played around with roles and access.

 

I do appreciate you coming back so quickly and certainly your advice was what alerted me to the issue.

 

Thanks

Re: Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

Re: Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

hi @sperecom,

 

Downloader logins should be the same as your admin logins ?

 

You're sure that you did not misspell or maybe copy+pasted with an extra "empty space" on username or password ?

Re: Magento connect not showing in admin under system menu

I can't seem to get to the magento connect Manager anymore after I tried to upgrade from 1.8.1.0 to 1.9.x.

 

The upgrade didn't work and gave errors then crashed my site. Tried aimlessly to recover my site until I tried a few fresh installations and realized the issue was the maintenance.flag which was giving me the error 500 Internal server error. Finally my site was back to normal however, now I am not able to access the Magento Connect Manager from the admin panel neither from the direct URL/downloder as you suggested. The error I get is an Internal Server Error 500.

 

I would appreciate any help you can give to get the Connect Manager working again.
