[resolved] can't login as admin (9 posts)

    I successfully installed the WordPress to my host, but when I logged in on the wp-login.php, I was being logged in as a member/user. I determined that since on my dashboard, links that are only available are:

    * Write a post
    * Update your profile or change your password
    * Add a link to your blogroll
    * Change your site’s look or theme

    I cannot see other options described here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Panels

    I used the information of Username and Password the same as I set it when I installed the WordPress. One more thing is that when I try to write/post a message using the first link, it takes me to this page with the message:

    "Since you’re a newcomer, you’ll have to wait for an admin to raise your level to 1, in order to be authorized to post.
    You can also e-mail the admin to ask for a promotion.
    When you’re promoted, just reload this page and you’ll be able to blog. :)"

    And the link takes me to write to my own email address! Help please!

    Did it ever work properly or is this a brand new install?

    Pls. I need my blog to work before Monday, I'm using WordPress 2.0. I tried reinstalling the software, but it is the same problem. This software comes along with the FREE Hosting of FreeHostia, under Elefante Installer Scripts.

    OK... well maybe someone can help me determine how will I modify my own account on WP to change privilege as an admin instead from being a member.

    Hard to tell when something else is installing (Elefante).

    Oh cute, I resolved my own problem. I just reinstalled again but by this time without modifying the URL path: xx.com/Wordpress

    and woot, it works.

    Thanks to the link, got to try to upgrade.
