I have separated our magento setup into load balanced frontend servers and a single admin backend server. I have specified :
web/url/redirect_to_base = 0
and have setup the custom admin url in database.
The access to magento admin panel works fine at
http://admin.magento.com/customadminpath but the homepage url
http://admin.magento.com/ now shows the webstore frontend which is not what I wanted.
How can I redirect any requests for homepage on admin server to the admin url with admin path?
I have tried putting rewrites in nginx but couldn't get it to work. What I'm trying to setup here is any requests to
admin.magento.com should be redirected to
admin.magento.com/customadminpath so that no one can access the frontend pages on
Also, what's the correct approach for this, through nginx configuration or change in the index script?
