Permissions settings change after losing password? (3 posts)

    I just recently restored my computer (with a back up ghost image).

    And this image did not have my WordPress Admin password in the cache.

    Unfortunately I had to use the "Forgot Password" feature to reset it.

    Anyway, now when i login and try to write a post or edit my Blog it tells me "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    Is this a bug or the way the program is suppose to behave?

    If so, how / where do i reset my permissions level back to adminstrative status.

    Any insight will be much appreciated.

    Peace

    You can change your password and user level in the SQL database, trough phpMyAdmin it's very simple:

    Thanks man.
    I didn't know about the phpmyadmin control panel and all.

    I found out actually, I was logging in with a different user and not a Admin.

    I stand corrected, nothings wrong with the app.

    As 99.9% its boils down to "user error" lol

    Peace
