OK, fair enough.

OK, so in this scenario presumably the admin GUI would be on a different
domain/IP but would still have to be at /admin.
website would be at www.websitedomain.com
admin GUI at www.admindomain.com/admin
Do I understand correctly?
I just thought it would be nice if there was a simple way to move admin
Would it not be a good idea to have a variable e.g. UI_URL that could be set
to the location adim GUI? For example:
