you could point the subdomain admin.site.com to site.com/administrator/ but it's not a "permanent" move.

what is your objective?

admin.joomla.com would mean that you would need to create a subdomain called admin. Most Host provide free subdomains. You would need to move your whole sit to the folder on your server that the Host points your sub domain at.

Then your whole site would have the FQDN of admin.joomla.com and admin.joomla.com/administrator would be the FQDN to reach your Joomla Admin.

I have successfully installed Joomla.
I do not intend to copy the admin directory
I created a corresponding subdomain and connected it to the admin directory

and now ...

The creation of the subdomain is not working properly. I tried functions "ModeRewrite", which is not working properly. IN Joomla are sewn definitions (JPATH_SITE, JPATH_ROOT, etc) which control the references to the files. Unfortunately, the administrator also refers to parent directory, which is the main domain site.

The reason for my research?
The creation of this barrier to reach a solution to the administrator bots. The second reason is to create a componentu Administrator for the convenience of the user should go to the subdomain.

Do you have any ideas?

Yours
M

Of course it is not working correctly. Joomla needs to be accessed by the same URL.

Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System to understand why.

http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... iple-sites may help you accomplish an alternative for what you are attempting. But it will not change the way that the DNS works.

So run the admin at any subdomain is not possible due to the design of the system.

Am I right?

Thanks

Yes that is correct IMHO. The links in Joomla and extensions are relative to the URL Joomla is in. But and extension may help with a solution for your objective even if it is not the way you originaly expected. Flexibility is the key. http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... a-security another option.
