[resolved] "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." (94 posts)

    Hi everyone, I've read through all of these and I still haven't managed to solve this problem. I'm on version 2.02 at the moment and thinking of going to 2.05 but I want to solve this problem first ideally.

    Here's where I'm at. Firstly, I hadn't logged onto my blog for about a week when suddenly I got the "sufficient permissions" message and no tabs in the Dashboard. I hadn't changed a thing between visits and the site had been working fine for several months.

    I've checked the database and everything appears fine (except for one thing which I'll get to in a moment). I turned off the plugins by renaming folders and files. (Is there a better way of doing this?) Anyway - no help. I removed the cache folder contents - No help. So I reversed those two changes.

    I thought it might be a hosting issue, but I have another wordpress site with the same people, which I can still access with no problems.

    Onto the one difference I noticed. In the database for the blog with the problems, I'm missing fields for "Nickname", "First" & "Second" names for admin (ID=1). In the other database, those entries exist. Both have the "{a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}" entry.

    I haven't tried the .htaccess changes suggested yet. That will be next I guess.

    Leading on from all that, should I go through the up-grade process to 2.05 as a possible solution? If so, how best should I turn off plugins and other thing I might normally do from within WordPress?

    Thanks for any help!

    I am getting the same error as everyone else but I am confused on what works to resolve it. I am running one main web site with addon domains. My primary web site does not have a blog but one one of the subsites does and I cannot install a second one and access the admin. Each site is a unique URL identified by seperate folder structures, no rocket science.

    For example:

    http://www.mydomain.com (Does not have a blog installed)
    http://www.mydomain.com/site1 ( whick resolves to http://www.site1.com does have a working WP blog)
    http://www.mydomain.com/site2 ( whick resolves to http://www.site2.com gives me the following error message)

    *********You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    I have different databases and my config.php shows different table prefixes: $table_prefix = 'i_wp_'; and $table_prefix = 'wp_';

    My SQL databases are different: database_wp1 and database_wp2

    I foudn other posting which relate to having multiple versions of WP installed, I am running v2.0.4

    Im running my wordpress install on mediatemple's gridserver product. I didnt make any changes to my install and all of a sudden I have the same symptoms as most others on here. I have 8 comments in my queue but I cant approve them or anything like that. Once I log in, I cant do anything!

    I suddenly got this problem some hours ago. After reading this post I realized that all problems came from wp_users, wp_options and wp_users_meta, so I backuped all my tables but those three, did a fresh installation and replaced the new tables with the backup ones and left the others untouched. Everything works perfectly again.

    Good luck.
