[Resolved] "Upgrades" admin page – having permissions error recently

  • Hello,

    recently we’re started to have “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page” error in wp_die() screen when trying to upgrade our Payment History of Module Pages, as EDD promting us in the dashboard.

    Earlier, this upgrade operations work flawlessly. Of course, the upgrade operations are tried to start using the admin account.

    Codex says that such situation can occure when add submenu page() is hooked onto a hook different from “admin_menu”. But EDD is hooking right onto admin menu.

    WP is 3.5, EDD is, php is 5.3.*

    Thnx in advance.

    You shouldn’t need to upgrade anything if you are running EDD v1.3.4.3, not unless the previous upgrades failed to complete.

    Are the upgrade notices not going away?

    Yes, notices appeared some time ago. Maybe, since EDD being upgraded to v1.3.4.3, but i can’t say this for sure. But now notices stays on permanently.

    Hmm, not quite sure what that issue is. We’re about to push out v1.4, so please let me know if the upgrade notice remains after upgrading.

    Pippin, good day!

    I’ve upgraded EDD from 1.3.* to on two of my websites.

    • One of them haven’t “EDD need to upgrade” messages earlier, but now it does show “Easy Digital Downloads needs to upgrade the plugin pages, click here to start the upgrade”. Trying to upgrade leads to wp_die() due to permissions. This site has a comparatively clean WP and EDD installation, all of developer’s code changes are through hooks.
    • The other website, that started the task, still shows 2 EDD upgrade messages: payment history and module pages, as it were before EDD upgrade to 1.4.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Can you paste the contents of the System Info page here for me?

    Sorry, do you mean phpinfo() contents? I don’t know of any WP system info..

    Downloads > System Info.

    It’s a new page we added in EDD 1.4

    I can’t see it, i think because plugin pages hadn’t been upgraded yet.

    Hello again,

    i’ve found a reason for this bug. It was mainly due to a careless in EDD code extension.

    Sorry for false alert, and thank you again.

    Careless code on our part or someone else?

    No, it’s been on our side. Thanx again.
