Magento Admin URL Change

It is very easy to change admin URL for Magento.
If you want to change URL from

http://www.example.com/index.php/admin or http://www.example.com/admin

TO

http://www.example.com/index.php/siteadmin or http://www.example.com/siteadmin

1) Open /app/etc/local.xml
2) Find this code:

3) In that snippet of code, change

to

4) Save the local.xml file
5) Remove everything under /var/cache/
6) Remove everything under /var/session/
7) Don’t forget to change permissions for the local.xml to read only. I would recommend chmod 440 or 444.
