WPMU Dev Dashboard Plug & Better WP Security


I am trying to to use the WPMU Dev Dashboard Plugin but I am also using Better WP Security. It seems like Better WP Security is blocking out the WPMU Dashboard plugin and I can't one click install WPMU plugins or see what plugins need updated because it says I don't have permission to do that. Would there be any settings I need to change in Better WP Security.

    Hi there @Nick

    I hope you are having a great day!

    Better WP Security does a few things on your install that may interfere with the WPMU DEV Dashbaord, most notably to the admin username & ID.

    If your ID has been changed in that way, you should be able to restore access by adding the following to your wp-config.php file:
    define('WPMUDEV_LIMIT_TO_USER', '1');

    Change the "1" to the actual ID now associated with your username.

    Please let us know if that helps resolve your issue and, if not, we'll dig deeper.

    Hey @Nick,

    It looks like we're going to need a deeper look at this, could you send in the following:

    - Mark to my attention - ATTN: Michael Bissett
    - A link back to this thread
    - Include FTP
    - Include any relevant URLs for your site

    On the contact form, select "I have a different question", this ensures it comes through and gets assigned to me.


    Thanks! :slight_smile:
