Warning: Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions

Today one of my team member was trying to install the extension in Magento via the Magento Connect Manager, and was getting this error message, you might also get this error while installing the extension via the Magento Connect Manager (System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager).

It means that Magento is unable to write the files on your Magento installation. “Warning: Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions.”

Magento Connect Manager

The solution to this problem is very easy just have to set the permission 777 to all folders, for this we need the SSH access of the root user the command is below:

find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

Now I hope it will solve the Magento Connect Manager problem, now you can install the extension easily, but don’t forget to change the folder and file permission to 755 after installing the extension. The command is below:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find var -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
chmod 777 var var/.htaccess app/etc
chmod -R 777 media 

Hope that helps and you have easily installed the extension.
