I got a very odd error for "new" admin user on Drupal 7. There are a few admin users in this site but only the "new" one that is unable to create, edit or list links on any menu. The error message is like so:

You are not authorized to access this page

But this new admin user has the same role as other admins.

Does anyone know what can causing this?

  • We cannot debug a site to which we don't have access. Listing all the possible causes, hoping to guess what happened, is not the purpose of a Q&A site. – kiamlaluno Oct 14 '15 at 16:14

Make sure you flush caches and rebuild permissions (from status page) and run cron. If these fail check if any custom module implements hook_node_access A rogue Rule could also be the culprit

  • I really afraid of rebuild permission. Will this causes anything during and after the process? – CocoSkin Jan 22 '15 at 16:01
  • The site currently has over 5000 permissions in use. – CocoSkin Jan 22 '15 at 16:07
