Renaming Textpattern directory

If you’re looking to rename the Textpattern admin directory (which by default is “textpattern”), then you may do this with mod_rewrite through your .htaccess:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule  ^admin/(.*)  /textpattern/$1     [NC,L]

where “admin” would be come the new directory name. ( will still work, however.)

Thanks to Andrew for this answer.

Not working…

After some trial and error I got the following to work, but the page then doesn’t find the CSS:

RewriteRule ^admin(.*)$ /textpattern/$1 [NC,L]

hazel, how about the combination of two rules:

RewriteRule ^admin$ /admin/ [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^admin/?(.*)$ /textpattern/$1 [NC,L]

Place them above your other rules. The first redirects to the same url with a / behind it. The second rewrites admin/ to textpattern/ and the CSS works.
