    Help! I am new in (the world of) wordpress and I just installed wordpress 5 hours ago in my PC (windows - wamp).

    I used the steps here during installation. I haven't done anything after installation but when I logged in I am redirected to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/profile.php with error "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.".

    Read and tried all the solutions available here in the forum and other sites but it's either I can't understand what they are talking about or it's does not solved my problem or it's not applicable (like plug-in problems).

    Some solution i read were:

    • The "force_upgrade.php from Mark"
      -haven't done this as I am wondering if i do need this even if i freshly installed my wordpress.
    • edits in wp_usermeta "a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}"
      - I do not know where i can find "a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}" in phpmyadmin and my wp_usermeta does not have a data.
    • .htaccess-I have created .htaccess in my C:\wamp\www\wordpress\wp-admin already but nothing changed.

    Please help! I do not know what to do anymore and I really want to start learning wordpress.

  2. I Dont use this account Anymore why is it still here

    Hi makoyguevara,

    Looking at the URL you have installed it locally on your PC, which is fine. Although I've never tried an auto upgrade from a local machine...

    Was WordPress working fine before trying to upgrade?

    Few things to try first:

    1) Can you get to http://localhost/wordpress/ ?
    2) Can you get to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin?

    Hi Mat,

    i did not upgrade my wordpress as i installed it for the first time on my pc, and right after installation i tried to log in and then there's the error. I have not done anything other than installation.

    Yes to both url and a big thanks!

    I tried removing wordpress even the datatbase and reinstalled it but nothing changed at all.

    I was able to fix it already! Yey! Using the forceupgrade. I thought that I don't need it before.

    My question now is why does it look so empty compared to other admin page that I saw online? Here's my admin screenshot.
