    So im trying to mess around with the new default wordpress theme and when I go to Appearance -> Background or Appearance -> Header I get

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    This is with the default Twenty Ten theme. Has anyone ran into this problem I have not been able to fix it. Thanks

    Disable all your plugins and see if you can access it then. The only real reason I could see you getting this error is if you’re running some kind of plugin that has modified your user roles.

    all plugins have been disabled and it still doesn’t work.

    You could check to see that you have proper admin privs –

    Access your database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel), go to the wp_users table and find the row for your user_login . Note the ID of this row. Now, go to the wp_usermeta table and find the wp_capabilities row for your user_id . Set the value of this row to a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}

    yes thats what that field was set to, still the same issue. I have no problem accessing an other part of the dashboard. Also im running on localhost since this is a testbed.

    So after a bunch of failed fixes I did a fresh reinstall of wordpress and that did that trick. I also used the wp3_ prefix for the new database.
