How to hide login path of our joomla website?

Post by pankhudi » Fri May 24, 2019 12:17 pm

Hi,
I have a blogging website, and I want to hide my login URL path to prevent hacking attempts.
Is there any solution?

The Site Security section of JED has a number of extensions that can help: https://extensions.joomla.org/tags/login-protection/.

But if you're asking, you shouldn't literally rename "/administrator" to "/some-other-folder-name" because some extensions hard-code "/administrator" into their extension and depend on it being that.

Akeeba Admin Tools says it best (paraphrased): "while renaming /administrator "can" be done, it is NOT recommended and there is NO SUPPORT if doing so messes up your system"
