Softaculous


Topic : Custom WP Install, Different Admin Link


Posted By: sitedartweb on July 23, 2019, 5:18 pm
Hey all,

First post...so, hello.

I have created a new custom install of Wordpress with a few plugins we use. One plugin redirects wp-admin to a new link (/siteadmin).

I have edited the info.xml file to include the new admin (<admin>siteadmin/</admin>), which displays correctly when installed...but, it looks like softaculous is storing either wp-login or wp-admin. when I click the link, it, of course, gives a 404.

Can we change the admin/login link for the softaculous installed app?

Thank you

Hi,

Please add the following lines to the install.php in the __install() function of your custom script :
PHP Code

 $software['adminurl'] = $__settings['admin_folder'] = $__settings['adminurl'] = 'siteadmin';
sfileindex($software['adminurl']);

Ok....this threw me off. Since we used the Custom Wordpress instructions, the install.php is encoded.

So, basically, I need to create an install.php from scratch if I want to set a custom admin login?

I could use those instructions too please.My ISP cannot understand why I would change my WordPress Admin URL, so will not support making any changes.
I use the standard softaculous WordPress installer so no custom script.
Thanks!

Hi,

We did not understand your query.

You want to change the admin URL for your installation ?
