I have a website where we want to move the admin portion to a different URL (for security purposes, according to the site owner). So, to make the admin section accessible only from this new domain name, what would be involved? The host hasn't changed so the files will be stored in the same location, just only accessible from this new url.
The main site: http://mysite.com
The old admin: http://mysite.com/admin/
Now that old admin should be inaccessible and the new admin should be a this new domain he bought: http://mysiteadmin.com/
But the files are still on the same server. The host hasn't changed.
Does this even make sense? The owner's rationale is that then we can turn off all write privileges to the frot portion of the site, thus securing things a bit better. As I write this I am thinking "This doesn't make sense" but I want to see what you folks think. Thanks.
