How to Move/Map Admin Console to Different URL


Is it possible to rewrite (via apache rewrite rules) or reassign the Openfire Admin console from configuration to a different to another URL (other than root)? Prior to recently, I used Apache22’s ProxyPass & ProxyPassReverse (mod_proxy.so & mod_proxy_http.so) to map ‘/’ to ‘’ & basic auth to password protect that location (while allowing location /webchat/). However Google’s Chrome browser liked to access /favicon.ico while accessing the webchat function, triggering a user name password pop up. If I can remap the admin console to another path, this would help resolve this issue. Using simple rewrite rules causes Jetty to lose track of pages, thinking it’s trying to access non-existent Admin console .jsps.
