  • Why do you want to change the Admin-Panel URL?

    There is no benefit in doing that, it will add no additional security.


    If you want another layer of security then enable the "Multi Factor Authentication" for your user that can reach the ACP.

    Afaik there is no setting to do that and I would recommend against this, as you could break your installation in the worst case.

    Thank you good idea

  • , it will add no additional security.

    Correct, we call it "security through obscurity" and that is no security.


    Another way of "protection" would be a .htaccess in association with .htpasswd, but since the 2FA in WoltLab not necessary.
