    Default Problems when renaming admin folder

    I am new to Zencart. I have installed with no problems then I came to the bit about renaming the admin folder.

    I renamed it in my ftp program and automatically updated the links in the associated files.

    As I am using version 1.5 I skipped the section of editing the configure.php file.

    Then when I go to open the admin panel in my browser I get this message:

    ERROR: admin/includes/configure.php file not found. Suggest running zc_install/index.php?

    Any ideas please?

    How are you 'opening the admin panel' in your browser ? If you're trying to use the button on the Zencart installation success page, it won't work after you've changed the name of the admin folder.

    I was typing in the direct address in my browser.

    I am deleting it all and starting again, just incase I did something wrong first time.

    Deleted it all and started again and still getting the same error message.

    Would it make any difference that I am testing on localhost?

    Sorted it :)

    When I was renaming the folder in dreamweaver, I was updating the links as well.

    I shouldn't have done this so changed it all back then renamed again without updating links and it worked fine
