    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

    Found that this breaks the following:

    enter image description here

    Renamed the Umbraco folder to "backoffice" and added the recommended app settings as per ""

    Umbraco assets still pointing to the Umbraco folder despite the recommended changes being made.
