Avoiding attack: How to change the admin login URL? (3 posts)

    Dear all,

    I recently suffered from occasional attack from somebody who tried to login to my site thru the admin login URL:
    http://mysite.com/wp-admin

    I wonder if it is possible to change this admin login URL?
    -> if yes, how to do?
    -> and how to avoid problems if WordPress is upgraded later?

    Thanks for any kind of help!

    I would try some other options first such as limiting access to the WordPress admin URL via IP address:

    You might also consider combining this with a plugin like Limit Login Attempts.
