    I'm trying to update to v. 3.9 from 3.8.1 but there is no update section in the dashboard section like there has been in the past. How do you update your WordPress from the dashboard?

    Try navigating to Dashboard -> Updates. That should generate the upgrade notice.

    There is now "Updates" that's the problem

    I'm only running into this issue on my site calvarypetaluma.org, but not on any of my other sites. It looks like my admin login is no longer giving me admin permissions on this site even though I have the permissions set to admin.

    Using Phpmyadmin (or another MySQL management tool), first backup your database. Then navigate to your wp_usermeta table and locate the meta_key called "wp_capabilities" for your user_id. Change the meta-value for this record to:

    a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}

    Ok, I did this but it didn't seem to have any effect.

    After making the suggested change above I just get this message when I try to log in.

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    Make sure you don't have this line in your wp-config.php file

    define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true );

    It doesn't look like that line is in the wp-config.php file

    I finally found the : define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true );

    This solved the issue, thanks
