    Would like to bump this just a bit as its related. Running vbulletin 4.2.2 and we have the changes made to config.php but ours looks like this

    $config['Misc']['admincpdir'] = 'blahblahadmincp';

    $config['Misc']['modcpdir'] = 'blahblahmodcp';

    but within Admin CP there are links that are broken now. For example; "Admin CP > Moderation > Moderate Threads" gives a page not found 404 error because it is still looking at the /forums/modcp folder for moderate.php.

    Can someone tell us what we are doing wrong? Or is there something else that needs to be changed?? Repaired??

    thanks very much

    You can rename the directory whatever you want.
    Then go to the config.php file and update the variable to the renamed directory.

    PHP Code:
    // This setting allows you to change the name of the folders that the admin and
    // moderator control panels reside in. You may wish to do this for security purposes.
    // Please note that if you change the name of the directory here, you will still need
    // to manually change the name of the directory on the server.
    $admincpdir 'admincp';
    $modcpdir 'modcp'

    Its not /admincp.php & modcp.php by default, those are directories /admincp/index.php & modcp/index.php

    You can edit the folder names via ftp/ssh and rename them to your choice of words, then edit config.php & change the names there as well to match the names you chose when renaming the folders.

    I would also suggest you apply htaccess to those folder to provide proper secuirty.

    Hello I'm making a website however It's down due to some Emails from vBulletin but were hoping to get this resolved soon, when I had it up before It got hacked and If I can get it back up is there a way of changing the AdminCP & ModCP so it's a less chance of getting hacked?

    Because everyone knows It's /admincp.php & modcp.php so can I change it if so how?
