Magento

Install any extension and site crashes and goes into maintenance mode. please help

 

Problem :

Platform: magento 1.9

 

When I try to install any extension, my site goes offline (maintenance mode).

 

 

I’m installing them through the magento connect manager.

 

An example extension would be http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/TBT_Enhancedgrid

 

I have some extensions previously installed.

 

I’m running  Magento CE ver. 1.9.0.1 on an ubuntu LAMP machine.

 

I’ve tried removing any unused modules and clearing var -> cache

 

What should I do?

 

learn magento

Solution :

As to Magento Connect not cleaning up after install and getting a 503 error, that’s pretty standard with Magento Connect installs. Find the file maintenance.flag in your Magento root directory and delete it. ( you can use filezilla FTP client to delete maintenance.flag file)

 

The maintenance.flag file puts Magento into maintenance mode and stops access to the site during module installation so the installer scripts that run after module installation can have half a chance to run properly on a busy website.

Search does not return results

Problem :

Platform : Magento 1.9 , Catelog search, Search
As i described in the title i don’t get any results when i search for a product. I have tried so far:

  1. Checking the visibility of the products
  2. My products are in stock
  3. I have also set the qty to 100 to be sure
  4. I have updated the products attributes under catalog->manage products-> select all products.
  5. I assigned all the products in the main website for my certain store view.
  6. The name attribute can be used for search.

I have also tried to search with the sku but nothing happens again. The odd is that the advanced search with both name and skuworks.

And my problem remains.. Any ideas on how to make my products to appear when searched??

 

This Solution works Perfactly:

I’ve experienced this. My fix was to go to Manage Products and select all products and perform an "Update Attributes" from the dropdown above the grid. In the Update Attributes screen, move to the Websites tab and re-associate with the proper website by checking the checkbox under Add Products To Website.

 

Screenshots to understand better :

Step 1: Go to Manage Products and select all products and perform an "Update Attributes"

 

Step 2: move to the Websites tab & check the checkbox for which store you want your search to perform.

Step 3 : Save.

Refresh Front-end website and Try to search product,you will find its working, Bingo!
