Changing Admin Folder Name.....

Recommended Posts

I have been messing with this forever!!

 

I tried the .htaccess file and finally got the login box to pop up. When I enter my user name and password it just pops up again and again and again!!

 

so...I decided to change the name of the admin folder. Should be much easier right?? WRONG!!

 

I changed the name of the folder. I went into the admin/includes/configure.php and changed the "ADMIN" to the new file name...where applicable.

 

Now...this is what I get:

 

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/X/X/X/XXXX/html/catalog/XXXX/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!

 

Any idea what else I might need to change to make this work. I'm about to give up on osCommerce for good!!

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Thanks,

Rhoda

Nope...I only changed the lowercase "admin"

 

I figured out that I had to change it before I even did the install...and there were a few lines that I had to change in an install folder as well (it was install page 7 on lines 159,160,161) for anyone else who may be having problems.

Works like a charm...now I'm on to the next challenge!!

I was messing around again today...and found the exact path for those of you who may need it:

intall/templates/pages/install_7.php

edit the "admin" on line 259 (not 159).

 

That's it :)
