Locked out of mysite after doing WP Integration

    Hey guys. I am having a heck of a time with getting BBpress setup and integrated with WP.

    This is a MU install and both share the same database. I did pull the data into BBpress from phpbb and prior to doing the final step of WP integration things all work great. Forums , posts , topics, users all work.

    I hit the wp integration using wp_ and now I am told I am not a user on the site. Can’t recover my password or anything. Can’t log in using the keymaster account I setup on install or any other account.

    All the users are there in the database just fine but no one can log in. It’s like they are all invisible.

    I want WP to be my main log in system not bbpress so I assumed integrating was the key to making that happen. I need the users from bbpress to be on the WP side as users and be able to log in and use both properly.

    One more thing I guess to throw into the mix is, I do also use buddypress.

    Looking for any help and advice.

    Thanks.

    @rickdlewis – You’ve got a lot going on there. Between potential problems with your phpBB migration, porting your phpBB users into the WP user tables, problems with WP integration and user roles/capabilities, and problems with BuddyPress trying to take ownership of your bbPress installation, there are a ton of places where fallout can occur.

    First things first, do you have direct access to your database, either through phpMyAdmin, or another SQL interface of some kind?

    @JohnJamesJacoby – without a doubt there is surely trouble a stirring with all that. I guess I was hoping for a miracle.

    Yes I have access to the database.

    @Rick Lewis – Can you confirm through your DB, in your wp_users table, that your account with a user_id of 1 is either ‘admin’ or whatever you may have named it?

    Then, can you confirm in your wp_usermeta table, that you have something for user_id = 1, meta_key = wp_capabilities. When you do, respond back here with what that is; it should be serialized data.

    @JohnJamesJacoby – wp_users table has an account with user id 1 and my correct username.

    wp_usermeta has user id 1 with capabilities of administrator.

    Not sure what other info you need as you lost me with this serialized data thing.

    I do appreciate your help with this.

    Thank you.
