View Full Version : Moving admin page
12-06-2007, 05:59 AM
We would like to move admin page to another directory to prevent hackers from being able to access and try to crack the login.
Is there an easy way to accomplish this without breaking anything?

It is possible in version 4.0.2
You need to rename admin directory and rename line VIVVO_FS_ADMIN_DIR located in VIVVO_ROOT/conf.php file.
Directory name: admin1
Constant: define('VIVVO_FS_ADMIN_DIR', 'admin1/');

Thanks. Is this a good idea, or are we better served by using htpasswd and htaccess to protect the admin section?

Yes, you can use htpasswd and htaccess to protect the admin section.
