[Plugin: Better WP Security] Changing table prefix kills wp-admin
If you’re about to try this plugin, backup your database first.
I installed this plugin today and it looks cool.
However, when I used it to change the table prefix it reported that it had failed. I then started getting messages (when logged in as an admin user) that I didn’t have sufficient privileges to access any of the pages in wp-admin.
Deleting the plugin directory wasn’t enough to fix this. In the end I had to drop my wordpress database, restore a backup and manually amend wp-config.php to get up and running again.
