Sudden loss of admin rights

Hi Everyone,

I've had my own instance of LS (Version 2.00+ Build 121101) that has been working fine for some time. I installed it and am the super admin (don't feel "super" now though...).

I went in this morning and saw that my admin controls now do not allow me the permission set to create new users etc.

Does anyone know what might have happened AND can anyone tell me how to re-establish myself in my own domain (hopefully without shutting down surveys that are running and re-installing LS) as the super admin?

Thank you in advance for any help or advice.

-George

That sounds pretty weird and I haven't heard of such a behavior in the forum yet.

Limesurvey shouldn't change rights simply like that. That might sound stupid, but things like that happen: did you log in as the super user or maybe as some other user?

Hi Holch,

I logged in as usual (the one ID I have), and I see the difference in the admin interface, most especially that I no longer have the rights to create other users.

Most likely, I did something while I was cleaning out users who no longer use my instance.

The question remains, is there a document in the LS admin files where I can make a change to correct this? ie, to reset myself to super admin?

Thanks for your reply!

Hopefully, you or someone can direct me to fix this.

Hi Everyone,

This is really strange, and I hope someone in here will read this and help.

I just looked at my user settings using PHPmyAdmin and verified that my identity does have super user rights. But, the entire interface to create new users is gone - I can only access myself, and there is no where to create new users. Not only that, but I cannot even change my own password - the interface is gone.

Any ideas what's going on?

I am attaching a screen capture to show you what I see when I first log in - as a super user.

Never seen that. If you have superadmin permissions you should see everything. Did you clear cache and everything after update? Did you try a different browser?

Hi c_schmitz,

Yes, I tried IE (latest version - just updated to windows 8.1 pro), Firefox, and Chrome. Cache and everything cleared. The image above is all I can see, and as I mentioned, I cannot even get to the window to change my password.

The last thing I did before this happened is I removed a user who no longer needed to access my LS instance. But when I look at the table in PHPmyAdmin, I see that user still in the table, along with me and one other individual. I am the only person in the table with a 1 in the super user field.

Any ideas?

Just to be clear, see the image below of what is missing in my instance (when I captured this image, I logged into another instance where I am a regular user - ie, the university where I work)...

Instead of it being a loss of super admin rights, I think that what's happened is that I have lost the navigation icons to those web pages where you manage users, passwords, etc. Click on the last image I uploaded to see what I'm referring to.

So the question is, how do I get the navigation icons back?

Thank you for any help on this!
