    Hello,

    I changed my admin password on a website, and I logged out and logged back in, and the website says do not have sufficcient permissions to access even the dashboard. What is causing this?

    Using Phpmyadmin (or another MySQL management tool), first backup your database. Then navigate to your wp_usermeta table and locate the meta_key called "wp_capabilities" for your user_id. Change the meta-value for this record to:

    a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}
