User Problems After Downloading Minetest 5.0.1

I recently installed Minetest 5.0.1 and now the user I normally use isn't recognized as the world admin. I checked the name and pass and everything matched, I could go into my locked chests in the world, and also my doors, I just couldn't open other users doors, and the node detectors previously set up in the world would not recognize me as my user. Is there something I have to enable in the options to make myself admin? Super weird never had this problem before when updating to a new version. Any ideas what might be the cause?

In Minetest 0.4.x, the server admin was always given all privileges regardless of their actual privilege list. In Minetest 5.0.0 and later, the server admin does not always have all privileges and instead their actual privilege list is used (which, by default, is the same as that of a regular player). However, the server admin can always use the "/grant" and "/grantme" commands to gain additional privileges and I believe they can also run other privileged commands without needing the respective privileges (but as far as things like locked doors go it's as if you don't have the relevant privileges).

If the server doesn't upgrade to Minetest 5, you can still use previous versions of Minetest. And how exactly multiplayer doesn't work?
