Magento Downloader - Insufficient Permissions Using FTP to update Magento Connect

You've set your downloader directory in Magento to use FTP to update files in your Magento installation. You can confirm that your username, password and root are correct in the settings, but still receiving the error "Please check for sufficient ftp write file permissions", then you may want to check a few things.

media
downloader/.cache
downloader/cache.cfg
downloader/config.ini
downlaoder/connect.cfg
var/cache
var/package/tmp

Check to see if those directories and files are writeable.

Try and run Magento Connect again.

If this saved you hours of work or saved you from a headache, feel free to buy us a beer.
