WordPress is creating an empty database, there is a database but with out any values.

I am on local WAMP Server 2.4 (PHP 5.4) Windows 8 Wordpress 3.6 (also tried 3.5.1)

WAMP Apache is Giving some errors I am pasting few lines here:


"GET /test_3/wp-admin/css/colors-fresh.min.css?ver=3.6 HTTP/1.1" 304 -
"GET /phpmyadmin/db_structure.php?db=db_test_3&token=4bb71407ccf91fc27d3c8338186ee369&db=db_test_3&ajax_request=true&ajax_page_request=true&menuHashes=572d5b14-cb7c7ed1-ada592ed-4fce1948&_nocache=1376960501429607598 HTTP/1.1" 200 40875

Past-History: I have changed port to :8080 because windows 8 was already using port :80

How did you change to port 8080 and where did you set this? – M.Bennett Aug 21 '13 at 7:31
Along these lines in httpd.conf #Listen Listen 8080 #Listen Looking at it i changed it in to: #Listen #Listen 8080 Listen And wola database is receiving values now :) but after stetting up wordpress i am receiving this error: "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." – Imran Bughio Aug 21 '13 at 20:32
check your wpconfig.php database settings - at some point your settings don't match - plus with phpMyAdmin: check for correct table prefixes, wp_usermeta: wp_capabilities should be a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";} plus wp_user_level 10 – M.Bennett Aug 22 '13 at 6:45

I found the solution! -- i might have messed this up while changing port.

In httpd.conf -- i had this:

Listen 8080

Simply changed it to this:

#Listen 8080

Database was receiving values but word-press started giving this error on login attempt

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page

So i simply went to database and gave my user administrator privileges! (From here i followed the instruction under heading "Editing the wp_usermeta table")

@Jason Aller I fixed the solution a long time ago and posted answer on stackoverflow. Forgot to add it here as well. – Imran Bughio May 7 '14 at 18:19
