Recommended Posts

i want to change admin folder name.how to change i see it from here. http://docs.whmcs.com/Further_Security_Steps. but i don't understand $customadminpath = "custom_admin_folder_name_goes_here"; this code.

what i include here ( custom_admin_folder_name_goes_here)

it should be like $customadminpath = "mycustomfoldername";

just it or some thing else?

if you read over the doc correctly you would have seen this line before the code your talking about.


You then must tell WHMCS what the name of that folder is for things to work by adding the following line to the configuration.php file:

$customadminpath = "custom_admin_folder_name_goes_here";

Out-of-the-box, your admin folder is named "admin" and the admin URL (for example) would be http://yourdomain.com/whmcs/admin


If you were to rename your admin folder to "brecun4trestadrutrAVEvacHachUp", making your admin URL http://yourdomain.com/whmcs/brecun4trestadrutrAVEvacHachUp, you would need to have the following line within your configuration.php file:

$customadminpath = 'brecun4trestadrutrAVEvacHachUp';
