Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot access widgets nor users, everything else okay

    From my wordpress installation I am missing the widgets administration area – if I type the address I get non sufficient rights (widgets still show fine on the site though) and the Users page (if I try to go to it I get a CheatinUh?).

    Else everything is okay. I can create new admin users and so on, but somehow for the widgets and Users page, wordpress thinks I am not an admin.

    Disabling theme and plugins did not help. Also not using the old database with a fresh wordpress installation.

    What can be wrong in the database for such a problem?
    I would really need to edit the widgets….

  • try automatically reinstalling wordpress or updating

    Did that a couple of times. Instead of users I simply see a profile menu. – did not write that down clearly….

    Oh, I just think there maybe one reason. When updating from 2.9 to 3.0 I had some database problems. Therefore I simply set the wordpress version value to the new value, but no real database upgrade happend.

    Is there a way (without downgrading to 2.9 and reupgrading – because I do fear something like this will introduce even more bugs) to redo the database upgrade?
    Maybe some rights are not there due to this problem?

    Okay solved it by setting db_version to 2.9.2 (12329) in phpmyadmin and then clicking onto upgrade database when logging back in into wp-admin…
