You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

  • New install. Running on a 1and1 root server. Php 4.3.10 and mysql running 3.23.54. I am able to do the install, I get a password. I am able to log in. The problem is that I get: “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” after clicking every link. I get this error on post.php. I am also missing the menu that runs the top of the site.

    I have installed the same file on another server, and it works great. What am I missing?

  • I found a copy of 1.5, installed it on the problem server. It seems to work just fine. What do I need to change?

    I keep on getting the same error

    I’m in the same boat and have found several threads in the support forums with the same issue. None of these end in an explaination or solution – is this a WordPress bug?

    Please try this. Go here:

    Compare that with your usermeta table/ You will need phpmyadmin.

    Is yours the same? (bar the nickname)

    Yes, the same less the “ttrack” which is a setting in wp-config.php -> $table_prefix.

    I’ve resolved the issue as being a combination of several issues. A new web host resulted in the DNS settings not being in place and thus the WP install was using invalid paths. This was resolved when the DNS settings took effect allowing access to the site via the final URL. At fresh install at this point ran much smoother.

    PLUS a PHP configuration issue which was resolved with:

    set_magic_quotes_runtime(‘0’);
    ini_set(“magic_quotes_gpc”,”0″);

    placed at the bottom wp-config.php.

    Thanks for responding… hope this helps.

    Wow. That Worked. Thanks. I have no idea what I am doing. Why did that work?
