  • Is it possible to rename the wp-admin directory to say, admin, or something similar without any problems? With the exception of the default login/register links on the front page, does anything depend on the wp-admin name?

  • Hi,

    I have created a script which can help you rename your wp-admin folder. Find all the relevant details on this blog post.

    I would like to add that it’s not a quick and dirty hack. I have added record in wp_options table with option named ‘admin_folder’ and I am using it in all the scripts which references ‘wp_admin’ folder. I am using standard function ‘get_settings()’ to find the value of ‘admin_folder’.


    There’s a lot of discussion on this very issue here:
