How to Change Drupal Login URL

Posted at April 4, 2016 at 3:26 pm by Jithin

In this documentation, we can check how to change Drupal login URL. This can be done by installing the module ‘rename_admin-paths’. This module is used to secure Drupal back-end by overriding admin path. This module allows you to:

Rename path like ‘/admin/…’ to ‘/something/…’

Rename path like ‘/user/..’ to ‘/something else/..’

We can use the following steps to install the module ‘rename_admin-paths’.

 

1) Find out the module from drupal.org.

2) Login to Drupal admin panel.

3) Click the button ‘Modules’.

4) Click the option ‘+Install New Module’.

If you are using Drupal6, you can get the same feature by using the following code in your ‘settings.php’ file.

function custom_url_rewrite_outbound(&$path, &$options, $original_path) {

if (preg_match(‘|^admin(?![^/])(.*)|’, $path, $matches)) {

$path = ‘backend’. $matches[1];

}

}

 

function custom_url_rewrite_inbound(&$result, $path, $path_language) {

if (preg_match(‘|^backend(?![^/])(.*)|’, $path, $matches)) {

$result = ‘admin’. $matches[1];

}

if (preg_match(‘|^admin(?![^/])(.*)|’, $path, $matches)) {

$result = ‘404’. $matches[1];

}

}

 

That is how we can change Drupal login URL.
