    I installed WordPress from my host which installs WordPress 2.0

    I went to http://www.blogname/wp-admin and logged in and the dashboard came up. I clicked on write a post.

    Error message: “you do not have sufficient permission to access this page”

    I came to the forums and read everything I could on this error and it sounded like an upgrade issue so I upgraded to 2.7

    Then I tried to log into wp-admin and got the “permission” error WITHOUT the dashboard even coming up.

    I deleted the upgrade and back to square one.

    I have WordPress in the root directory. I don’t know if that matters.

    I’m really frustrated. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    I keep seeing posts about this but no help. I’ve done just about everything that’s been suggested in prior posts and nothing.

    since it is a host install – ask them why you aren’t allowed sufficient permissions on the server

    It happens either way as I documented in the main post. I tried doing it through the provider and when that didn’t work I went step by step through the manual install and that would give me the errors before I even got to the dashboard.

    Also this error is all over the site and on other blogs. I’ve tried all the suggestions like force-upgrade and nothing works. This is not a host issue, it’s a Word Press issue.

    I had my host take a look at it and they said its a WordPress problem and then pointed me to a dozen posts around the internet about it. Lovely.
