[resolved] Can't update site, permissions issue? (3 posts)

    Hello,

    WordPress itself isn't telling me of upgrades or even showing an upgrade option under "Tools". However, a plugin I have installed, Wordfence, is showing me updates available. I try to go to wp-admin/update-core.php, but am told

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    What can I do to fix this? I'm the server admin for my WordPress site, so let me know if I need to change or investigate file permissions any further.

    The issue you described isn't related to file permission. Try deactivating this plugin and then visit wp-admin/update-core.php. If you don't see the same message, then it could be due to Wordfence. In that case, please create a new topic in the appropriate forum so that the author of Wordfence plugin would notice your topic.

    It turns out I disabled this without realizing it in wp-config.php. It was a quick fix to comment out the problem DEFINE line.

    Thanks anyways!
