Magento Admin URL


The URL to access the Magento control panel can be manipulated and changed at anytime. Some people choose to change the URL for security reasons and others to make it easier to remember. If you want to change the URL of your Magento control panel simple follow these steps.

1. Open your FTP client and connect to your server.

2. Once connected you will need to locate the local.xml file which resides in /app/etc/local.xml

3. Open the local.xml file with the editor of your choice.

4. Once opened locate the line: <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName>

5. Change “admin” to the desired new admin url.

6. Save the file and re-upload the file, overwriting the existing file.

7. (optional) If your store has caching enabled you will need to re-fresh the cache.

Now your Magento administration are will be accessible via your new URL.
