New Post or Page "Submit for Review" only

    I recently moved my site to a new server and delete a few million posts from database. Everything seems to work fine but when I try to create a new page or post, the only option I get is to “Submit for Review” and even when I push that it get access denied. I can edit any post or page just fine. Here i what I’ve tried.

    1. created new admin, cleared cache, logged in a new admin, same results.
    2. disabled all plugins
    3. Rename plugins directory.

    The only thing that worked was emptying the posts and posts_meta tables. When I did this I could create new page or post just fine. I assume it has to do something with having like 7million for the autoincrement for posts_meta table? After culling down the table I really only have 10k now but I can’t find a way to reindex the table or something.
