Add admin powers to account in mysql?

    I messed up when I installed BBpress on my wordpress site initially so that wordpress database integration didn’t work. I’ve fixed it though with one mistake. My wordpress admin account does not have admin powers for BBpress and the current BBpress admin account won’t work since BBpress now only looks at the wordpress database. I can access the mysql database directly through cpanel and phpmyadmin. How do I edit my account entry so it has bbpress admin powers?

    You can try this:

    UPDATE bb_usermeta SET meta_value = ‘a:1:{s:9:”keymaster”;b:1;}’ WHERE meta_key = ‘bb_capabilities’ AND user_id = 1;

    The wordpress database has a different prefix than BB, so there’s no bb_capabilities.

    Here’s the current capabilities of the admin account

    a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}

    Can i just change this so it has both wordpress and bbpress admin powers?

    If admin’s user_id is not 1, then adjust that value. Also your table may be called “wp_usermeta”:

    INSERT INTO bb_usermeta VALUES (meta_value = 'a:1:{s:9:"keymaster";b:1;}', meta_key = 'bb_capabilities', user_id = 1);
