Re: [PLUG] Back to wordpress

The development version of WP-CLI has a `wp role reset` subcommand that will get you there:

curl -L '' > wp-cli.phar;
php wp-cli.phar --info

I would advise you to install the .deb version from, but it doesn't have the nightly changes (I'm betting 0.14.1 will have the role reset subcommand).

Per my inquiries from last week, I rebuilt the VPS hosting wordpress and did a manual install of 3.8.1. I got the base wordpress up. I then did the migration of porting the database and copying over the wordpress folders wp-content and a couple the developer created, changed ownership, permissions, etc. but just got a blank screen. The log file showed incorrect paths for several files it was trying to access (up one level) so I repointed Apache2 to the appropriate folder rather than having to add “/wordpress” to the link.


The actual site still goes to a blank page, however what is new is that I cannot get into wp-admin. It lets me login, but then says “you do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” I go in through phpmyadmin and can see the one user, ‘admin’. I do not see the permissions however or if it is even in that table. Is there a way for me to force the permissions through phpmyadmin? I don’t think it can be file permissions under wp-admin as the owner for all files is root:www-data and permissions are –rw-rw-r--.
