[resolved] Site won't let me in - URGENT - (5 posts)

    I was installing a few plugins to improve my site, for which I am the administrator. I logged out for a while and went back. But the site does not let me in saying I don't have sufficient rights to access... Is there any other way I can sign in? Can there be a virus or bug in the plugin that caused that?
    Thanks for your help!

    Not sure about the plugin causing a virus.

    But you can try and reset your password in the MySQL database for admin. Using your MySQL panel provided by your hosting company.

    figaro thank you so much! It totally worked and I found the plugin that crashed the system. It happened again as I was re-activating them...
    The plugin was the minimeta widget
    Thanks again, it was a pretty weird feeling to be seating in front of the screen without being able to get into the back-end of the site!

    You're welcome...glad it worked for you. For future reference, you can do a lot in your db with those same procedures...just always make a backup in the event something goes wrong.
