How to Change your magento admin path

By default magento store admin can be accessed by adding a /admin to your store url.  This is known to anyone who knows magento and also available to hackers and bots. Hackers can brute-force to gain access to your store and eventually if your admin login are not strong enough they can easily break it. According to magento shoplift vulnerability (SUPEE-5344 patch) magento indicated that your store backend should not be known to public.

Magento gives a very easy way to change your store admin url to anything of your choice. Here are the steps to change your magento store url –

  • Connect to your store ftp and navigate to to app/etc from your magento setup root directory
  • Open local.xml
  • Look for the following code snippet in the file
    <admin>
    <routers>
    <adminhtml>
    <args>
    <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName>
    </args>
    </adminhtml>
    </routers>
    </admin>
  • Change admin word to something else you want. Lets say we want to set it to nothinghere so the code will like below –
    <admin>
    <routers>
    <adminhtml>
    <args>
    <frontName><![CDATA[nothinghere]]></frontName>
    </args>
    </adminhtml>
    </routers>
    </admin>

Flush your magneto cache and access your magento store with your new admin url.
