Securing The Administration Tool


Recommended Posts

How am I supposed to secure the admin panel.



By the use of your control panel or by installing a add-on from the contribution section.

First thing to do is to FTP to your site and rename the admin folder to something unique (not admin2 or newadmin). Then in admin/includes/configure.php look for the two references to /admin/ and change to /newname/. This will make it much harder for would-be hackers to even find your 'admin' panel.


Once you've done that, go to your web hosting control panel (not your osCommerce control panel), and look for a feature called Directory Protection (or something similar) and use that to password protect the newly renamed 'admin' folder.
