Make a WP user a keymaster (with no keymaster on bbpress)

  • I had originally installed bbPress on a different database than WordPress and later I set the config file to use the WP database for users (I know, I know, but it was my first time installing bbPress…). It works fine except for one detail. Since the keymaster user was set on the bbPress db, after the switch I lost it, and now I can’t log in to the control panel.

    Is there a way to make a WP user a keymaster? I tried adding the $bb->new_keymaster = ‘admin'; // thing to the config file and re-running the install (told me it was already installed) and the upgrade (told me nothing to upgrade) with no luck.

  • Run a search for key_master. Some1 had deleted theirs, and another user provided a key to add in wp_usermeta.

    Do you have your old database still? You could change your settings back to use that, log in as keymaster, and make your new desired account keymaster.

    Or you could just reinstall. Surely it’s not that much of a problem?

    fel64: I thought of that first, but while going to the old database would allow me to log in, I wouldn’t be able to make the WP user a keymaster since WP and bbPress wouldn’t be linked anymore.

    I ended up editing the database (well, I asked someone who knew what he was doing ;) ) and it worked. This is the post Omarvelous was talking about:
