  • Status changed from New to Needs Feedback

Did you run the upgrade wizard?
The repository data needs to be inserted into the database to be able to download extensions.

#2 Updated by Wolfgang Klinger about 5 years ago

Thanks for the hint,
it’s not obvious (at least for me) to run the Update wizard for a brand new installation(?)

  • Status changed from Needs Feedback to Closed

Seems to be solved

#4 Updated by Julian Hofmann about 5 years ago

After trying to reproduce the error, we have found the problem: While the initial install routine creates the database structure and inserts additional data, creating the database structure via "Install Tool -> Database Analyser -> COMPARE" creates only the structure (ext_tables.sql) but not the additional data in this structure (ext_tables_static+adt.sql).
Our database had been manually deleted due to an error and had been created once again via compare. In this case we got the error above. With a really new installation everthing was fine.

Id like to add a short description how to fix this because this issue is one of the first results on google:

  • Open typo3/sysext/extensionmanager/ext_tables_static+adt.sql and copy the INSERT sql statement from there.
  • Run this sql on your typo3 database
  • Your extension manager should work again

For the lazy ones, try this sql statement:
INSERT INTO tx_extensionmanager_domain_model_repository VALUES ('1', '0', 'TYPO3.org Main Repository', 'Main repository on typo3.org. This repository has some mirrors configured which are available with the mirror url.', 'http://typo3.org/wsdl/tx_ter_wsdl.php', 'http://repositories.typo3.org/mirrors.xml.gz', '1346191200', '0');
