access admin panel if not in public_html

Post by Moleman » Sat Sep 19, 2015 10:01 am

Hi,
how can i access the administration panel is the site is not in the primary public_html folder? my joomla site (which someone else made a few years ago) is now used as a members only area, located in a subfolder in the public_html.
I can get to the index, but when I want to access the administration panel it gives me an error.

in the public_html folder is now a new open to everyone site...

I know that normally you do www.domain.com/administrator to get there.
so now i'm trying to use www.domain.com/members/administrator (where members is the name of the subfolder)

any help?

It does not matter whether the site files are in the directory public_html or in a sub-folder below it. The URL to the Administrator back-end is URL-of-your-site/administrator

thx for the reply, I've tried to reach it that way, but then I get the error page not found.

and as I try to reach the admin panel of the old site, I get the page not found from the new site... :-/

What are the URLs of your old site and new site so that others can see what is happening?

Check whether the domains are pointing to the correct directories.
