    Default renaming admin folder

    I read the info on how to rename the admin folder, I renamed the admin folder in the admin/includes/configure.php file, I only edited the paths not the ADMIN part, am I suppose to rename that also? Example:

    define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/');
    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_ADMIN', '/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');
    define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', '/home/mysite.com.au/www/public/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/mysite.com.au/www/public/');

    What am I missing? Now when I go to login, I get the 'System Setup Required' page and don't know what else I am suppose to do. Help!

    So then it should look like this:

    define('DIR_WS_NEWADMINNAME', '/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/');
    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_NEWADMINNAME', '/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');
    define('DIR_FS_NEWADMINNAME', '/home/mysite.com.au/www/public/NEWADMINNAME/');
    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/mysite.com.au/www/public/');
