Freeparking has an admin redirect on their control panel which is conflicting with the functioning of the site. They have turned it off for this site, but whenever their system reboots, it is automatically turned back on. Is there a workaround this?

Do you mean you cannot use /admin ?

In older versions, I think it wasn't that easy to change the admin path because of a lot of hard-coded stuff...

Have a look through the forum , for example :

I have a number of sites sitting with Freeparking and I have manually gone through the code and changed the references to admin to CMSadmin. This fixes the issue but it is hardcoded in a number of places, so you have to make sure you get them all.

Another option is to put Silverstripe in its own directoiry and change the .htaccess file.
