Solved: ‘Connection string is empty’ in Magento Connect

Just tried to uninstall a module in Magento in Magento Connect manager and received the error Connection string is empty.

Solution to connection string is empty in Magento:

1. set all folders on Magento installation to be CHMOD 777. 
2. Uninstall module
3. Set all folders back to 755.
