    Hello Blackhatters,I've had this problem for quite sometime, and have tried to find a solution for it, but i have had no luck so i decided to see if anyone here can assist me.
    I own self hosted wordpress website i uploaded, a theme posts etc. The problem i have is that when i try to access certain parts of my websites(SEO by Yoast,JetPack Stats, and other things) This error pops up: "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.".

    My current theme is PageLines, but i had others, and the same problem appeared even if i switch to one of the pre-installed ones.I have multiple websites on my hosting plan(3, 2 uses WP), and i use hostgator.If you need any more Info just ask.

    Your help will be much obliged.

    sounds like u got permissions set incorrectly for the plugins directory of ur install or those plugins? check the permissions (/wp-content/plugins/) and also any .htaccess files u have for your site(s) if its a 403 or 401 error

    I checked both nothing wrong with either one i would think its some wrong in the admin folder though since every time i get the error the URL shows something like this: /wp-admin/admin.php

    Re installing WP solves the problem for a little while then like 1 day later it shows the error again.

    This message appears when webserver can not access the requested file.
    Try to chown to apache and chmod 775 the whole wordpress directory.

    Try to change the permission of "Content" folder to 777. Switch over different browser, Do you have shell access to your hosting? If problem still persist ask your hosting support.

    Ok i am going to have to look up how to do the first part the chmod part is simply changing the permison value right?

    It'd be great if you could make steps for me if not ill try my self.
