superuser Access Denied and other strangeness2 users found helpful
Superuser (admin) gets a funny little popup window stating Access Denied when trying to view the sitemap tab in the back-end.
Superuser also cannot edit which groups a user belongs to (including self)
When "Return to Website" is clicked, the bar indicating login status and granting option of editing pages ... disappears.
There are no errors reported in the logs.
Clearing the cache (site AND browser) had no affect.
Deleting the browser cookie had no affect.
I've read about Advanced Permissions but can't find where to turn them on/off so unless they're on by default, they are off.
I'm completely stumped.
UPDATE: noticed that the # of admin logins increments by four simply by clicking to a different back-end tab and then immediately back to the Users and Groups tab. Tried altering the session.save_path var in php.ini to no affect.
Is there any way to restore the initial permissions?
My instinct tells me it's config problem on the server -- maybe something with .htacess or folder permissions? The install is on a host that I have never worked with before so perhaps it's in the default php.ini?
Has anyone discovered a solution to this? Any leads? I'm a bit stumped at this point.
Is there a simple way to add the group to the user manually in the mySQL?
Has anyone tried a clean install to server?
I don't know what everyone else tried, but I uninstalled concrete5 from the server and performed a manual installation as outlined here:
I had already upgraded to advanced permissions so per my reading it seemed hopeless to try to do anything else, but if there was some other fix I would definitely like to know for my reference.
For example: in the dashboard "Access Denied" would show up just below the top level page while I'm trying to add a page.
in page edit mode if I'm attempting to view the design, or permissions, etc. it would appear directly in the drop down
and the whole page if I tried to navigate to a sub-level page.
