Installing and configuring jSecure authentication

There is an easy-to-install third-party plugin, highly rated by the Joomla! developer community that allows you to change the link to the administration control panel, making it difficult to find if you're a hacker wanting to cause trouble.

As you know, we access the control panel for the Party People website by typing in:

http://www.partypeople.com/administrator/index.php
