I have installed the most recent version of LimeSurvey on a fresh LAMP (xubuntu 14.04). During the installation, I neglected to flush privileges, so I messed up the initial admin login with default password. I tried the suggestion below (#106218) and was able to login but the admin page that appeared was stripped of all privileges; no menu, no option to change password, could not create survey, user edit had no option to change password. All I could do was logout. Seems as though something is missing in a table somewhere that provides users with privileges?

The administrator has disabled public write access.
