I am a bit miffed at the explanation of this...I need to know what and where this code is suppose to be changed and what it should look like in the end and example would do.

# $admin_file: Administration panel filename. "admin" by default for
# "admin.php". To improve security please rename the file
# "admin.php" and change the $admin_file value to the
# new filename (without the extension .php)

$admin_file = "admin";


Please give me an example of how and where this should be changed ??? I know it's in the config.php DU...lol But which end of code needs to be changed and where...and how to execute file once changed ???

Thanks A PHPNUKE wanna be website owner.
Ging...

$admin_file = "admin"; means that the admin script file is named admin.php. So, anywhere where nuke is calling $admin_file, it will actually look for admin.php. Now if you change the setting to $admin_file = "Ging"; , then you must rename the admin.php file to Ging.php (Note that if this is on a *nix server the name IS case sensitive). Now when nuke is calling $admin_file, it will actually look for Ging.php.

Frankly, this is really another useless "feature". It's a very weak attempt to "secure" the code. Just install NukeSentinel(TM) and/or Chat's most recent patches and your admin.php file is safe anyway.
