Change admin does not work on multi language site.
Backup your site before update ChangeAdmin.
Whenever you update the joomla must rerun ChangeAdmin.
Whenever you update Joomla, try to see if ChangeAdmin continues preventing direct access to the administrator. If not prevent rerun ChangeAdmin to correct it!
Now with support to dot in joomla root folder.
Thank you Sébastien Rufiange for tip.
The goal of this component is to enhanced the security of sites in Joomla, in special the administrator folder.
Now Plugin to hidden changeadmin menuitem from others users. Only available to super admin.
If changeadmin create the directory "adminxyzkl" then access administrator with:
If try access:
Redirect to Google.
Read help.html (link online) to details and Help online.
Now support to portuguese and english.
But now it will not let me in. It forwards me to Google.
How can I completely remove this component. I want it gone so that I can do my work. I will add it back once everything is updated.
Usually this is due to lack of mod_rewrite on the server.
To completely remove just remove on administrator/index.php the 3 lines:
if ($ _COOKIE ['JoomlaAdminSession']! = "1234567890")
?> location = '.. / index.php'; ;
Then remove the file administrator/.htaccess
These instructions are on WARNING.txt.
I've just try it on Joomla 2.5.1
Didn't work with com_changeadmin_j25 (there, miss a file : changeadmin.php~) but it work really nice with com_changeadmin2_j17.
A good work, really what i was thinking of developping, but i don't need now to, as you did it perfectly !
Sorry, the requested page or object does not exist on this server. The link you followed is either outdated, inaccurate, or forbidden.
If using 1.5 version I dont support. Please use the 2.5.1 version.
Extract the file and read the readme.txt file.
See if your server support Apache mod_rewrite, is required.
This was an easy install, worked perfectly first time, and I had no issues.
Would love to have seen more of this is J! 1.7, but this little mod helps a lot!
thanks for this component i used it for tow sites for the first it's ok but for the second no :( i deleted the .htaccess from the administrator directorie and i still can't access to my admin :s
what is the solution ??
Thank you !
and remove this lines below:
if (@$_COOKIE['JoomlaAdminSession'] != "1234567890")
The problem probably are in Dreamhost.
See other success installations below.
Apache have write permission in directory from your site?
Specially in administrator?
I was a little intimidated by the warnings about mod-rewrite, but since I had just installed joomla into a fresh website I decided to give it a whirl. I installed it and went into the extension and typed a new name into the only window available, and presto, I had a new administrator login URL!
One of the best and simplest extensions I have ever come across.
I would however recommend that the button for documentation should not lead to a 404 error!
Thank you for your feedback.
The 404 are for Joomla 1.6.1 to 1.6.3.
Try to login and logout in this versions.
Now in Joomla 1.7 is dont display, more redirect to index.php of the site.
Please staccs8, see the readme Or WARNING in this page.
Your web server dont support the mod_rewrite.
Then remove the hidden file
Easy to install .. Start component ... post some directory name, and clicking on the change .. :) that's it .. :) all do the well .. : D later, all you have to do is to log out and write /name-that-you-entered, and that's it .. :)
Thanks a lot.. :D
