 Magento – “failed to mkdir” error

Many times when you try to install a new theme or application from
“Magento Connect Manager” , you may encounter the error :

ERROR: failed to mkdir

To fix this issue follow the below steps :

root@server[#] cd /home/username/public_html/downloader
root@server[#] vi config.ini

It will show something like this :

preferred_state=stable
use_custom_permissions_mode=1
mkdir_mode=0777
chmod_file_mode=0777
chmod_file_mode_executable=0777
tmp_dir=../var/tmp

Now make the below changes :

preferred_state=stable
use_custom_permissions_mode=0
mkdir_mode=0777
chmod_file_mode=0777
chmod_file_mode_executable=0777
tmp_dir=../var/tmp

That’s all you are done.
