Recently placed our site front and backend into https:// then updated to magento 220.127.116.11. and followed supee-6788 instructions.
Everything in the instructions was going quite well everything was updated, form keys in place, downloader moved and renamed, all extensions working, website uninterrupted for the most part ....

https:// www.mydomainname.com /index.php/ mynewadmin /index/index/key/ somehugenumbergoeshere /
What is this all about????
