Magento connect does not have sufficient write permissions

Magento connect does not have sufficient write permissions you might receive this error after you installed a fresh magento install or migrated your site to a new host.

It can easily be solved.

Perform an ssh connection to your server.
Go to Magento home directory

cd /home/magentodir
Perform the following

chmod 777  -R downloader/ downloader/*

if you using Cpanel on your server set the following permissions:

chmod 755 -R downloader/ downloader/*

Now reopen your magento connect and verify that the error msg has dissapeared.
Now all should be well and you can now set your magento connect prefrences.
