How do I edit the .htaccess file to change my site's login url? Example, my site is example.com and I want the login url to be at example.com/banana instead of the default /wp-admin

Last questions asked were like 2 or 3 years ago and it might not be 'compatible' with the latest version on Wordpress.

I can access my site through SSH. Thanks.

Easy: just add this to your .htaccess file:

RewriteRule ^banana$ http://example.com/wp-login.php [NC,L] 

Now http://example.com/banana.php is your login page.
