How to rename the admin folder

Problem

You want to rename the admin folder to improve security on your site.

Process (uCloud v2.x / YetiShare v5.x)

  • In /app/core/Framework.class.php find:
define('ADMIN_FOLDER_NAME', 'admin');
  • Replace 'admin' with your new folder name.
  • In /app/helpers/RouteHelper.class.php¬†find:
define('ADMIN_CONTROLLER_PATH',
  • Ensure that whole line is set as following (do not change the 'admin' part - this is the name of the code directory and doesn't need changing).
define('ADMIN_CONTROLLER_PATH', '\app\controllers\admin\\');
  • Clear the routing cache by removing /cache/route.cache

Process (uCloud v1.x / YetiShare v4.x)

  • Rename the actual 'admin' folder via FTP.
  • In includes/master.inc.php find:
define('ADMIN_FOLDER_NAME', 'admin');
  • Replace with your new folder name:
define('ADMIN_FOLDER_NAME', 'mynewfolder');
  • Save and re-upload to your site.
