I am having a issue after changing the admin url.

Not matter how I change it either with the Magento Backend or via editing local.xml file this issue remains with Maagento 1.7
I have tried clearing cache too,

Please help it is very annoying as these issues have been happening with Magento for years and yet no one has addressed then even with this new 1.7 version,

Would really appreciate any help.

Regards

Thank you for your reply

As I mention in my post I have tried this method too - and result is the same,

Once the path is changed I log in with new url But after that any changes I make in admin interface are not saved.

Can you think of any reason why this would be happening please?

Regards

Sounds like an cache / session - Problem.
Please clear the complete cache in var/cache, delete your Browsercache and your cookies.

thank you for the reply,

I retried and again cleared all cache in admin and under var/cache

Manually via ftp client software.

The problem is still there, this is very frustrating

Can it be something relating to url redirecting - I am not a programmer or expert so dont know what to try.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
