After upgrade lost admin powers (4 posts)

    After upgrading to WP 2.7. in administration panel I saw that I become a simple user: no access to plugings, options, nothing. Just to writting new posts and editing comments to those posts.

    I looked in phpMyAdmin and I saw that all users (including admin) have been resetet to user_status 0. Changed that, nothing happened! It seems I am still admin, but I cannot access anything except writing new posts. Any ideas?

    Make sure your wp_usermeta record for that user has something like this:

    meta_key=wp_capabilities
    meta_value=a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    Please note the wp_ portion of wp_capabilities must correspond to your $table_prefix value in wp-config.php.

    Thnx! Doesn't really work for me. I looked in PHPmyAdmin and I have user_status set at 10 in wp_users. Also, in wp_usermeta I have wp_capabilities set at a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    Michael, the last part of your advise "...the wp_ portion of wp_capabilities must correspond to your $table_prefix value in wp-config.php" is not clear for me. Should I do what exaclty to check on that?

    Thank you all
