I have an user in a Wordpress Multisite installation and have access to the Mysql database, I would like to give myself super-admin rights to access the wp-admin/network page. Where can I do it on Mysql?

I looked the database and I think the wp_usersmeta table is the one, but I have no idea how Wordpress manages the roles within the database.

Any help?

This is actually stored in the {prefix}sitemeta table. The meta key is site_admins, and it's a serialized PHP array of usernames.

  • Thanks! I added my username to that array and it worked.
