What makes a user an Admin?

  • I’ve imported user tables from my old installation to the new one (because the import/export plugin failed), however I am no longer the administrator.

    I checked the tables over, and they’re identical… so I’m somewhat at loss here. What decides if a user is an admin?

    User rights is stored in usermeta not the main user tables.

    You were actually the keymaster, not the admin, which is higher.

    If you are user #1, try my fix admin access plugin to fix it.

    Ahh sorry didn’t see this post. I found the issue, tables on my old install had mf_ prefix, on new bb_ prefix. I renamed the tables themselves but overlooked the mf_ entried in bb_usermeta. Renaming those fixed things back!
