Deleted Admin in WordPress- now no Keymaster in BBPress

  • mizzmuzikluvr


    Well, I was having issues with my WordPress admin, so, like a clever person I created a new admin name and deleted the old. Well. Turns out that in doing so I’ve deleted my keymaster in BBPress.

    I’ve seen some posts that suggest editing the tables. I’ve tried adding the code

    $bb->new_keymaster = ‘AdminTwo’;

    to my bb-config.php and then running install.php. But, nothing happens. So, if I must edit my database, can someone please let me know in more deatail how? (Ie: Which tables, which values, etc.)

    Thank You so Much!

    You can fix this if you have phpmyadmin.

    Do you have it?

    go into your bb_usermeta (or wp_usermeta)

    and find that last administrator you made, it will look like:

    bb_capabilities a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    and just change the meta_value to


    user_id meta_key meta_value



    I do have php myadmin, and I will try this and let you know! Thank You!

    I am also having this problem. Unfortunately, the meta_value is already set to the value __ck__ suggests. Any other ideas?

    I am also having the same problem and the meta value is a:1:{s:9:”keymaster”;b:1;}.

    What can i do to get this to work?



    RichBrown, please start a new thread explaining your problem thoroughly. Please list the versions of bbPress and WordPress that you integrated.

    Thank you.
