Good day. I’m writing this email regarding the Hide My WP plugin and
WordPress URL settings.
I had installed and activated the Hide My WP plugin in my WordPress
and I had faced some problems.
At first, I have set the New wp-admin path from /wp-admin to
/abc-admin, and New wp-login path from /wp-login to /login. I also
hide the wp-login.php and wp-admin file in the setting. I did the code
in wp-config.php file. Afterward, I test the URL by testing on /login,
/wp-login, /wp-admin, and /abc-admin. I only can access the login page
by the URL /wp-admin. I get back to the setting in the plugin and
change back the wp-config.php, I found that the New wp-admin path is
not changing at all (still default value).
So, I made a second change on the New wp-admin path to /abc-admin and
New wp-login path to /abc-admin too. I add the code given inside the
wp-config.php file and then testing. This time, /wp-admin and
/abc-admin both can access the login page. But after login, it shows a
maintenance page to me, the URL shows the /wp-admin. I can’t access
I try the third time with /wp-admin to /abc-admin, and /wp-login to
/abc-login. I can log in only through /abc-login and it directs me to
the maintenance page with the url, /wp-admin.
Hi, thanks for contacting us. The behaviour of the plugin seems inconsistent as per your explanation above. We’ll need to check it to know what exactly is the issue with it in your site. I could login to site’s backend with the credentials given. But I’ll also need FTP access to edit wp-config.php while renaming wp-admin. Please let us know as private reply.
