Change admin path after installation - Magento 1

Changing admin path name is one of the important security action in Magento E-Commerce stores after installation. During installation period, we have an option to change default admin path admin to any another path name.

But we can also rename admin path after installation. To rename admin path, first we want to go to /app/etc and then open local.xml file.

Find the text ![CDATA[admin]] in the file. This is the default admin path. Then change admin name to some other name like kap_store etc.

So it will look like ![CDATA[kap_store]] and admin url will be http://www.our-domain.com/kap_store.
