  • Can I change the name of the 'admin' folder?

    Yes, I know this is a dumb question since I could go ahead and change the name now & see. But even if I could change it with no problems, I don't know if it could cause problems in the future. Plus this is my first installation of vBulletin, so, for now, I don't want to tamper with it anything any more than I have to.

    I'd like to change the name of the 'admin' folder to keep people from trying to get into the control panel. Yes, I know that anybody who could run an analysis tool would still find it within seconds, but I figure this would at least keep the script kiddies at bay.

    Thanks,
    'tog'

    Not without editing the require()'s in several global.php's, no.

    Of course, you could always just .htaccess protect it.
