[SOLVED]Custon Admin_url - on different virtualhost?
#1
Hi

My Mybb version: 1.8.19 (from github),
Nginx, Mysql, PHP-FPM.

How to place an administration folder on a separate virtualhost protected with x509 / PKCS # 12 certificate?

In Wordpress, you can do this protection wp-admin in the following way:
 wp-config.php:
define('WP_SITEURL', 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);
define('WP_HOME', 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'https://blog.domain.tld/wp-content' );

Nginx:

server {

        server_name blog.domain.tld;
...
        location  ~/wp-admin/  {
           return 301  https://wpadmin.domain.tld$request_uri;
           log_not_found off; access_log off;}
           
         location  ~/wp-login.php  {
           return 301   https://wpadmin.domain.tld$request_uri;
           log_not_found off; access_log off;}   
...
}

server {

        server_name wpadmin.domain.tld;
....
        ssl on;
        ssl_verify_client optional; 
        ssl_verify_depth 5;
           if ( $ssl_client_verify != SUCCESS )
           {return 301 https://blog.domain.tld/index.php?status=403;}
...
}



is it possible to create a similar solution in Mybb?
