How can I make the admin folder invisible?

I think that I don't understand how to use this shop.

 

I get access to admin folder, and I told a friend to go there too.

 

He and me can change the values on the administration page, with no login prompt.

 

 

What I have to do?

 

 

Thanks,

There are several things you can do. The easiest is to use .htaccess if you are not on a Windows server. There is also a contribution that does this. Search the forums for htaccess and admin.

Two things you can do. Password protect it, the easiest way to do this is through your hosting control panel, if you have cpanel it is called web protect. The second thing you can do is rename the folder from admin to something else. To do this you will need to change the path info your admin configure.php file. If you are going to rename it then you should do that first before you password protect it.

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Thanks for the tip. My provider has +sitemanager which enables me to password protect a directory.

 

 

I was really busting my butt trying to figure this one out.

// define the project version
define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-MS2');
