Wouldn't recommend you to, because you will have to change the paths in EVERY modification you currently have and will install in the future.

Depends on if the OP just wants to rename the directory - I think OC takes the DIR_APPLICATION into account, so modifications don't have to be changed. If you look at installer codebase https://github.com/opencart/opencart/bl ... l.php#L196

OP - Whats the reason for wanting to change it?

They DO have to be changed, if they modify files in "admin" folder. So my statement stays: not worth it at all.

many extension controllers, even the default OC provided ones have hardcoded admin/ paths defined (not even talking about possible hardcoded js stuff in twig files), you would have to change them all to a constant reference.

better use .htaccess to allow or deny ip address.
sample .htaccess
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from your-ip-address.
every time you want to access your admin, just edit .htaccess and change your ip address.

Much easier to add an access with password rather than constantly changing IP.

However, setting a password protection from access is only text formatting. It does not handle encoding or encryption.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

i use vpn , so there is no need to change ip address constantly.
