I can't go to my admin panel

software development

#1

I have installed zencart. I am editing on my local computer before I upload to the remote server.

The website is well installed but I can’t go the admin panel after changing the admin folder name. I tried to find solution on their website but their web pages don’t open. Is there anything I should do again after renaming the admin folder?
Somebody please help me.

Thanks,
Kumi

Rename it back?

It’s likely there’s a config file, .htaccess file, or database settings which are still expecting the old folder name. If you don’t want to change those, then change the folder back.

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.

I tried to change it back to the folder but the server tells me “you can’t enter the admin panel until you have renamed the admin folder”.

So I think I must rename the admin folder. If I should make some other changes so that I can visit the admin panel, please assist me.

The site opens well but I can’t edit it since I can’t go to the control panel.

Thanks

If the server tells you to rename the admin panel, I think you should rename the admin panel.

Hello,

I think you have to finish the job for me.I have renamed the admin folder and the code looks like this:

The map is zencart/admin/includes/configure.php

define(‘DIR_WS_ADMIN’, ‘/zencart/my_new_name/’); for illustration
define(‘DIR_WS_CATALOG’, ‘/zencart/’);
define(‘DIR_WS_HTTPS_ADMIN’, ‘/zencart/my_new_name/’);
define(‘DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG’, ‘/zencart/’);

define(‘DIR_FS_ADMIN’, ‘D:/xampp/htdocs/zencart/my_new_name/’);
define(‘DIR_FS_CATALOG’, ‘D:/xampp/htdocs/zencart/’);

The following map: zencart/includes/configure.php: I have not changed anything here. I remember you said I make similar changes here to reflect the changes I have made at the admin sight.
What changes can I make here?
