    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.

    Are you logging in as a super admin?

    I'm logging in with the same account I've used since the very beginning.

    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.
