Zen Cart Version 1.5.5F Released

Article Date(s): 02/25/2011 - 12/31/2035
One of the many improvements in zen cart version 1.3.9 is that it will prompt you to change the name of your admin folder to something different once you have completed your installation - IF you are doing a manual install. In fact, the program will not even allow you to log into your admin area without first renaming the admin folder and also removing the zc_install folder. This is an added benefit to help your site be more secure, because hackers KNOW that the "out of the box" name for the admin folder is /admin.

If you are using an automated installation program supplied with your hosting account, such as Fantastico, to install your zen cart, it will automatically rename your admin folder name. Nice, huh? No... not really.

Consider this... hackers have the same type of access for hosting accounts. If they were to use Fantastico to do an install... they would see what the admin folder name is re-named to and be able to write their stupid little hacking programs to search for that folder and hack into it if they can.

It is ALWAYS in your best interest for security sake to rename your admin folder to something generic. Do not feel "comfortable" with the fact that the automated installation program has renamed your admin folder. Change it to something else - and don't forget to change that information in your admin/includes/configure.php file as well.
