Installing WordPress using cpAddons – You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

I have a problem today using cpAddons to install my WordPress into one of my subdirectory. I receive "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." error upon logging into my WordPress panel. I believe this is not the first time i encounter this problem but this problem only appear if you are not using the default database "wp" as suggested by cpAddons. I google around for a while but didn't get the answer i want or any valuable solution. Hence, i debugged it myself.

Apparently,  everything generated by cpanel cpAddons was correct. The database data and wp-config.php was set correctly. Even the database user permission was also correctly given.  The file permission of wp-config.php was correct.

Now, i remove all the tables generated by cpAddons and run through WordPress configuration page and setup the WordPress installation again. This will install all the tables that i just deleted into the database. Guess what? It works. This means that the database tables installed by cpAddons is a buggy one. Therefore, we will have to erase the tables through phpmyadmin so that WordPress can be install correctly.
