I am attempting to activate the CiviCRM 5.37.2 plugin on WordPress 5.7.2 after editing the MySQL connection string. After saving the connection string, I briefly get the CiviCRM "Success" page before I get the infamous WordPress "Whtie screen of death" saying "Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page." (see attached)
I have the exact same error, I installed on hostgator, 7.3php, Activated and hit either CivicCRM Installer or "CiviCRM is almost ready. You must configure CiviCRM for it to work." After seeing CiviCRM Installed sucessfully it jumps to "wp-admin/admin.php?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/admin/access/wp-permissions&reset=1" and i get Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page. Using civicrm-5.39.0-wordpress.zip and the instructions on the wordpress install page.
- I cleaned out my uploads directory
- I tried changing permissions
- I attempted a clean reinstall several times
