Lost PowerCMS Settings button in Admin menu

Lost PowerCMS Settings button in Admin menu

When I set up PowerCMS and myself as an Administrator, I had a "Settings' button on /admin_cms/index.php page. That Settings button has disappeared and alternatively, if I am logged in and enter admin_cms/settings.php directly, it bounces me back to index.php. I see in the menu.php attached, that there is a WA_Auth_Rulepasses for a 'Super Administrator' but I only see 'Administrator in the pcms2_usergroups table that PCMS created in my DB.
Please advise. Thank you.

You must be logging in as one of the administrators and no the super administrator.

To get the super administrator username and password, go to the database directly with phpMyAdmin and open the WA_Settings table. You should be able to find the admin_username and admin_password fields and see the correct login information for the super administrator.

Only that super administrator has access to the settings page.
