  • 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.

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

Seems to be solved

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');
