Redirect Missing (Renamed) admin folder

Recommended Posts

I keep getting errors in my error log when hackers try to access my admin folder which has been renamed (for security purposes). What would be the ill effects if I redirected those attempts to the home page of my website?

Thanks

The "ill effects" would be they'd just eat up your bandwidth for nothing.

 

Anyone going after your admin like that is not someone you want hanging around as they have no legitimate interest in your site.

 

Redirect them off-site somewhere.

 

Let them eat up someone else's bandwidth...

:lol:

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
