Posts gone from WP Dasboard + Access to plugins denied WordPress


Thanks but I have discovered the problem is not due to new installation.

It is a malware bug that affected all the blogs I host on one server. It has injected malicious scripts into all the uploaded versions of Wordpress and their htaccess files..

I have subsequently removed the scripts and changed all passwords serverwide.

Thanks for suggestions though...

For some reason, since updating to version 3.0.3 of Wordpress I am now no longer able to see any of my posts/pages/drafts etc. in the admin area.

They are listed as being there along the top header, but aren't there in list view.

Also, when trying to access plugin options, I am given the message "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

I have accessed my Database and repaired, deactivated/reactivated all plugins. I've also set permalinks to default, again without success.

Also, when I add a new post, none of the right hand tool options are there - like post, draft etc...

Very strange.

Can anyone help?

Did you try reinstalling WP?

Also, try using twenty ten theme and see if you have the same results.

Same results.

Please try checking all the file permissions on the server. It might be that after you've re-installed / updated, the files gone to permission 644, while most of them should be 755, especially the .js files.

Lee Jackson comments:

Not sure whether they're right or wrong.

I know little about Technical aspects of Wordpress and backend tech stuff.

Maor Barazany comments:

If you want, mail me to maor [at] maorb [dot] info your FTP credentials - ftp host/username/password and I can check the files' permissions for you.

Re install a old version and then update it to 3.0.3 and check if everything is ok or not . If you don't have the wp old version drop your email . i will sent it to you .

Broken both times... any more suggestions?


Victor Teixeira answers:

I think you really have a WP permissions problem.
Try deactivating all plugins and then install the Members plugin.

Click on Configurations>Members components and activate the Edit Roles component.
Then Click on Users>Roles and click on Edit below Administrator.

Then check all the checkboxes and click Update Role.

PS: what's your php and mysql version?
