all users have lost admin panel permissions (5 posts)

    We've been working on building a site using wordpress. We're using several plugins, wp-cache, wp-shoppingcart, etc. We've had no issues (relatively) with getting to wp-admin. Recently, the wp-login script started generating "stop this slow mamma script?" questions from all browsers, but stopping the script allowed successful login to the admin panel. Now, no matter which user I try with, I always get the "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." error.

    I've installed the "wp-backup" plugin and made DB and full system backups, but i'm to the point where I'm going to have to do a total re-install (trying to avoid) because I can't seem to figure out why I wouldn't have the required permissions. Is there a place in users or user-meta to confirm I have the appropriate values in the DB?

    Also, i'm 5% new to this, just let me know if you want url's or passwords or whatev. Thanks!

    My first guess is that the plugins you're running are not compatible with WP 2.3.3 and something is causing a conflict.

    Deactivate all the plugins and see what happens.

    I'm not really sure what issue you're having here; you can't login or you can? What happens when you login?

    I've disabled plugins (by renaming the plugin folder) and it doesn't improve things.

    The issue is between the login screen and the profile.php page. when I put in correct login into wp-login.php (checked exactly the same as fresh downloaded 2.3.3) all browsers show a slow script error, and ask if you'd like to stop the script. If you say no, it waits, then asks again. if you say yes, it appears to continue to process, and then connects to wp-admin/profile.php and shows the error:
    "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    Without knowing more about what you've got going on there, I might suggest a clean install. If your site's database isn't corrupted, then make backups and try reinstalling wordpress, then install and turn on one plugin at a time and see if that helps suss out your issues.

    Also, what kind of theme/template are you running? You could be having issues with the javascript library you're using if this is a custom design.
