    Hi Id appreciate some help. When I log on I can only see my profile and dashboard but no tools are available so I cant get into the back end of my site at all – I seem to be locked out as the administrator. Any solutions?

    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;}
