    Installed from cPanel - Error - You do not have sufficient permissions

    I followed all suggestions in login - troubleshooting page and other FAQs. But couldn't resolve this error after logging in, redirected to - http://mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/.

    I deleted a couple of time and then re-installed from cPanel.

    Seek urgent assistance from WP team to help me solve this problem.

    thanks in advance!

    Check your database if you allowed all privileges when you created the database.

    @govpatel - yes I allowed all privileges to new database created on cPanel.

    @timdesain - Installation was from cPanel Software module - Auto installed.

    Thanks for your responses. Seek guidance on how to proceed further.

    you can try manual installation.
    1. dowload wp, save to your disk
    2. upload wp to your root folder
    3. extract with file manager (cPanel)
    4. move all folders and files from wordpress folder to root
    5. create db
    6. create user and password
    7. assign user to db with all priv
    8. ready to install wp
    9. open your domain, and follow the instructions

    @timdesain,

    Many thanks for the details. I did proceed further into the installation process after running the above steps.

    But now I am getting a blank screen while accessing every link from there, like these:

    1. http://mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/profile.php
    2. http://mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/
    3. http://mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=post

    Please advise.

    Internal server errors (error 500) are often caused by plugin or theme function conflicts, so if you have access to your admin panel, try deactivating all plugins.

    If you don't have access to your admin panel, try manually resetting your plugins, using ftp rename plugins folder to plugins_hold and create a blank plugins folder If that resolves the issue, delete blank plugins folder and rename original back to plugins reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, try switching Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to rule-out a theme-specific issue. If you don't have access to your admin panel, access your server via FTP or SFTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the Default theme Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue.

    If that does not resolve the issue, it's possible that a .htaccess rule could be the source of the problem. To check for this, access your server via FTP or SFTP and rename the .htaccess file. If you can't find a .htaccess file, make sure that you have set your FTP or SFTP client to view invisible files.

    If you weren’t able to resolve the issue by either resetting your plugins and theme or renaming your .htaccess file, we may be able to help, but we'll need a more detailed error message. Internal server errors are usually described in more detail in the server error log. If you have access to your server error log, generate the error again, note the date and time, then immediately check your server error log for any errors that occurred during that time period. If you don’t have access to your server error log, ask your hosting provider to look for you.

    yes. i think it's htaccess issue.
    rename .htaccess in the root folder to -.htaccess or else.
    then try access wp-admin.

    fresh install, right?
    so, ignore plugin and theme issues.
    it's still default.

    Hey @govpatel and @timdesain!

    Many thanks for your guidance...but WPv3.2.1 did not work.

    I tried all the possibilities out and even checked with my hosting provider. There were no error logs and the phpmyadmin was showing fine.

    Then I installed v2.5 and it worked. So either there is a bug in v3.2.1 or I have missed something in the forums / FAQs. Though I am sure I tried them all.

    I tried installing other Themes (even TwentyEleven) in v2.5 to explore...and got Fatal Errors...

    Please guide on which higher version should I try now that will give me better flexibility in building my blog?

    Thanks in advance!

    3.2.1 is the latest version and twenty eleven theme will not work on 2.5 as is designed for 3.2 version.
    Your original post was that there is permission problem then there are only two things that can cause the problem database privileges and file or folder permissions so check file and folder permissions normally folders are 755 and files are 644
