XF 1.2 "You don't have permission" ...


Well-known member
I moved the community from a shared to a VPS. The community was working so I never bothered to enter the admin section. Uploaded 1.2.2 files and now I go to /community/admin.php ... login .. and given the notice to upgrade. Click on link and given the error "You don't have permission"

Database shows that ID is 3.

Any suggestions?

I created a support ticket but thought maybe someone here might have a suggestion too.

Is that user listed as a super administrator in the configuration file?
Thank you Jeremy. Your post gave me the direction to look. While trying to track down configuration errors, I removed lines from the config.php file. It turns out the $config['superAdmins'] was not present. Added it back and now I can do the upgrade.
