    Hi folks, what is the best way to change the url of the admin page?

    I have read that you should add a url re-write in your

    '/config/urlrewriting.config' file.

    I can’t find the urlrewriting.config file within the config folder!

    Any help or pointers much appreciated.

    Check out the AppSetting umbracoPath. I tried this once though and gave up because it was more hassle than it was worth.

    Better to block access to the umbraco path from external locations (IP filter) using the IIS rewrite module.

    /config/urlrewrite.config is removed in Umbraco 7.6 (ish), so even if you're using an earlier version you probably want to avoid using technology which isn't present in future upgrades.
