Tried to search for help on this, but I am not even sure how to articulate my problem into a search term...
I use Dreamhost and the one-click installation for WP.
Dreamhost sends me my username (admin) and my password.
I am now logged in, but cannot upload themes or do anything. Under "Users," I double checked to make sure I was an administrator. I am.
Just to be safe, I also created a new admin account and then logged in under that one.
Both admin accounts don't seem to have admin privileges, and I have the message: "WordPress 3.1.3 is available! Please notify the site admin."
