    Change back office url Umbraco 8

    Dear Umbraco Team

    How can you change the url to the back office in Umbraco 8 ?

    like in Umbraco 7

    <add key="umbracoReservedPaths" value="~/customPath,~/install/" />
    <add key="umbracoPath" value="~/customPath" />

    Thanks Dibs

    Hi Dibs,

    I didn't test it but in 8 you have those appSettings:

     <add key="Umbraco.Core.ReservedPaths" value="" />
     <add key="Umbraco.Core.Path" value="" />

    You have to rename the umbraco folder as well. For more information see;

    Hi Erik-Jan

    I had already seen that pdf, you may be right that the app settings and renaming of Umbraco folder will do the job, just thought with Umbraco 8 it may be done differently.

    reminder to self, read web.config file : (

    Hey, did you get this to work ? :) I change the values in

        <add key="Umbraco.Core.ReservedUrls" value="~/***" />
        <add key="Umbraco.Core.ReservedPaths" value="~/***" />
        <add key="Umbraco.Core.Path" value="~/***" />

    But the path for font en BO text are not changed
