Errors in wp-admin after server restore (6 posts)

    A server on which a bunch of blogs are hosted was compromised (hacked) and had to be rebuilt. When we restored files and databases, however, all of our WordPress blogs started giving the "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page" error on anything in /wp-admin/ , except for the dashboard. This is true for every user on every blog, regardless of whether or not plugins are installed, whether or not I have deleted the cache, etc. Can anyone help me?

    I have tried deleting the cache folder, adding the DISABLE_CACHE definition, turning off magic quotes, etc. No luck. Anybody got any ideas?

    Can anyone help me with this? I've been through the search results above, and didn't see anything quite like this situation.

    I found the problem. My database restore file had gotten corrupted, so that all the quotation marks in the database contents were replaced with backticks (`). For obvious reasons, this messed things up, nicely. So, I replaced all the backticks with quotation marks, and everything is back to normal.
