Magento Downloader – No Extensions Listed

If you can’t see any packages or extensions listed in the Magento Connect Manager (Downloader), I might just have the fix for you. First thing I noticed was  we didnt have pear installed (use this script to make sure your server is compatible). After I made sure the server was compatible, the extensions still weren’t listing. I found on this thread that you can enter the following:

[code]magento-core/Mage_All_Latest[/code]

…into the “Paste extension key to install:” box on the Downloader. It will populate the list.

DD-WRT TX Errors – 0% 0 OK

  1. Wireless – Wireless Security: Set to “disable” (Wifi signal will now be visible)
  2. Wireless – Basic Settings: Set “Wireless Mode” to “Client Bridge”. Save, then Apply. (Your internet will go down, manually load your routers address or you will just wait forever.)
  3. Wireless – Wireless Security: Set to “WPA2” or whatever you had before (Wifi signal should still be visible)

Note: This problem returned a few days later, might be best to update the router if you have this problem.

Another note: This solution didn’t seem to help me the second time, but I set encryption to “WPA2 Personal – Mixed” and it came back to life.

Nagios SSL/Connection Issue Solved

On /etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg, (remote server) comment out the following line:

  • #allowed_hosts=

They say it ignores this config line if you use xinet.d, but they are totally wrong. I used to get the “Host <blah> is not allowed to talk to us!” error because of this.

The command I used to test the connection (on the host server) is:

  • /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H <remote_server_ip>
