[resolved] Multisite (Network of Sites) / XAMPP / Windows 7: Insufficient Permissions (6 posts)

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to install a network of sites on xampp. The install seemed to work (I edited the config files and .htaccess and all) but I can't see or access the "Network Admin" menu.

    @andrea_r helpfully suggested I access http://localhost/wp-admin/network/ which provided me the error message "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    I'm now troubleshooting that issue, and have tried changing my wp_usermeta wp_capabilities value (it's now a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;} and still not working). the value for the wp_user_level key is 10.

    I welcome any helpful suggestions for how to fix this issue!

  2. Did you click the button in the network setup menu screen?

    Did all the extra tables get created in th db?

    Basically that answer means you did not get remade as a super admin.

    I'm now troubleshooting that issue, and have tried changing my wp_usermeta wp_capabilities value (it's now a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;} and still not working). the value for the wp_user_level key is 10.

    And that's your usermeta for the main site - not the whole network. Look in wp_sitemeta.

    Andrea, has anyone told you recently that you really are the best? Supporting a project like this ain't easy, and I just wanted to say thanks.

    I DID click the button on that screen ( /wp-admin/network.php )
    the extra tables DID NOT get created in the db.
    [EDIT: it seems some of the tables have been created, but none of the site-specific tables.]

    I have also poked around in wp_sitemeta, and my site_admin value is a:1:{i:0;s:3:"admin";}

    Thanks again!

    Um, for the main site they will not be, because they are already there...

  5. Hi :)

    Can you confirm you've followed these instructions carefully and properly:

    Well, I solved the issue by uninstalling the network and reinstalling it. Here's the instructions I used to uninstall the network: http://blog.ashfame.com/2010/07/remove-wordpress-multisite-data/

    Then I reinstalled. I think the problem may have been caused by me not having created/taken ownership of the blogs.dir directory! :-X

    Thanks andrea_r for helping me troubleshoot and JJJ for your feedback!
