New installs not adding user as admin


I’m using the newest Windows v1.4.4.

When I create a new site and login with my admin credentials the user account created is not admin. I think it is a regular subscriber account.

It is the only user in the user table in the database but cannot access any wp-admin pages.

Upon closer look - In the usermeta table, the meta value for wp_capabilities is a:1:{s:13:“administrator”;b:1;} so I should have full admin access.

When I go to /wp-admin I get an error saying “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”

Nevermind, got it - I tried changing table prefix and missed one row.
