Redirection
Permissions Problems (4 posts)

    After installing Redirection.2.2.14 I receive this error message: You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page. when trying to access the plugin's settings.

    I downloaded the plugin to a Mac and uploaded via FTP. I know Macs can cause permission problems. Perhaps there is a file or two whose permissions I need to adjust?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm having the same issue. In my case, I tracked it down to the plugin only allowing users with the role name 'administrator' to access the plugin settings page.

    By doing it this way, the plugin does not support custom user roles. If they verified the user's capabilities, like 'manage_options', instead of the user's role, this would not be an issue.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tip, but this doesn't seem to be my issue. I am already accessing the plugin from an "Administrator" account. :(

    I thought it might be related to downloading the files to a Mac and then uploading them (I know this causes permissions problems on my LAN with Unix boxes). So I tried downloading to a WinXP machine and FTPing from there, but I have the same result.

    One thing that occurred to me is that this WP install is on a server that I'm accessing through a particular domain that resolves to the proper IP through my local hosts file. So anyone who tries to access the site through this domain without having first edited their local host file to resolve to the proper IP will see a completely different site.

    I can't see how this would cause a problem myself, but who knows?

    Well, we took the site live last night and this has provided no resolution to the error :"You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    Anyone else encounter this error? Suggestions? Better yet, solutions?

    Thanks much!
