    Hello, first of all sorry for opening a new topic but even there are many topics on this, none solves this issue with 3.8.1.

    So I got 2 wordpress sites in 1 database.
    Main table prefix: wp_
    Second one table prefix: alt_

    What I want to do is login to the second one with the users credential of the main one. What I did is add this to the wp-config.php file of the second WordPress site:

    define('CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE', 'wp_usermeta');

    Now the user gets logged in to the second one, but after logging-in, he goes to the page "wp-admin/profile.php" and getting the message "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.".

    I read many topics on this but I still cannot fix it. Tried changing the _init function by manually adding the table prefix but still nothing even though I read that it used to work on older versions of WordPress.

    Any help would be really appreciated.Thanks!

    Just tried what the guide at http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Custom_User_and_Usermeta_Tables says but still getting that message. Any ideas?
