Issues with super administrator access

Post by elmoualh » Fri Nov 07, 2014 12:16 pm

I have Joomla 2.5.11, and i am facing some issues accessing all the Super Administrator functions and features, knowing that i am a Super Admin.
As an example, some components are not working using non of the user accounts created (because of a lack of permission error). I am not able to access the Extensions Management, i can't find it anywhere!!!
any suggestions please?

you know this happens for me too on some of my joomla 2.5.x sites. What I do is usually log out and log back on. Until I find a solution this is my method. It seems I cannot edit articles, etc. Even modules have issues with me sometimes, but I have no hacking and no viruses.
