Solved: 8 Years, 10 Months, 3 Weeks ago Safely rename /admin?
#1
Solved: 8 Years, 10 Months, 3 Weeks ago
Just please walk me step by step though renaming admin folder and hiding the link to the admin directory in the admin account?

Notice! If this is not safe and might cause some issues to the rest or the script then I pass!

Thanks

We wouldn't recommend doing it if wasn't safe. It's a matter of renaming a directory and changing a string -- both which are reversible actions.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.

Edit: delayed response !

you can simply change the admin folder name on the files server and put that folder name in ./inc/config.php file
$config['admin_dir'] = 'admin';
and in the config.php file change value of $config['hide_admin_links'] from 0 to 1

you have to take care when uploading plugin files (if they have files to add in admin folder) and while upgrading MyBB

^ No. admin directory name should be correct in the config.php file (eg. $config['admin_dir'] = 'abcdef';)

Thanks just to be clear!
I have a plugin that point to the file located in /admin directory if I rename /admin directory the way to told me it's not going to be a problem?

No becuase in the plugin, it should have the code to point to the admin directory.
eg:
...../$mybb['admin_dir']/.....
not
...../admin/.....

where admin_dir is configured in your config.php
