Magento: Admin Controller Override

I had to override adminhtml controller class (Mage_Adminhtml_System_ConfigController) with my module’s controller class (MyNamespace_MyModule_ConfigController).

It was really tough to find the right solution. I googled, searched in magentocommerce forum and found a lot of solutions. But they didn’t work for me.

After searching & trying more, I got some work done with the following piece of code:-

But this gave “404 Error Page not found” when I go to System->Configuration.

Finally, I did the controller override with the following code:-

Hope this helps. Thanks.

    could you be more explicit with


    what’s ‘mymodule’ ? is it ‘Adminhtml_System’, ‘system’ or ‘adminhtml’ ?
    could you paste your config.xml?

    and to register the module i used:


    is this correct?

  • By “mynamespace”, I mean to say the Namespace you are using for your module.
    By “mymodule”, I mean the name of your Module.

    like.. if you have app/code/local/Apple/Paypal

    thne, Apple is your namespace and Paypal is your module name.

    so.. mynamespace = apple
    and.. mymodule = paypal
