Admin Tools Popular ComponentModulePlugin

Admin Tools is a true Swiss Army knife for your site. Our freely available Admin Tools Core will detect, notify you about and install new Joomla! releases, fix your files' and directories' permissions, protect your administrator directory with a password, change your database prefix, set a secure Super Administrator ID, migrate links pointing to your old domain on-the-fly and perform database maintenance, all with a single click.

Written and maintained by the same developer as Akeeba Backup and the Joomla! updater component of Joomla! 2.5.4 and later.

Note: a commercial edition (Admin Tools Professional) with extra security-oriented features is also available from our site for a fee. This listing is about the free version, Admin Tools Core.

Note 2: The software is free of charge, its support is not. You need a subscription to request support. However, its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the public tickets is free.

I use Joomla almost exclusively on websites I build for my clients and have not had any major problems until the other day. I had two websites in progress for clients and for some reason, both of them had something go wrong during setup. I was unable to use some of the components. I had a feeling that it was a corrupt core file somewhere but did not want to go through the process of a reinstall of the site. I searched for a way to repair the install and found Admin Tools. I installed it on both sites and ran the reinstall and it fixed both sites. Saved me a lot of time!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!!

The combination of such excellent functions with a so easy to use user interface is unfortunately rare. I wish all extensions where done with the same quality as Admin Tools! Five and half stars!

Admin Tools Core installs and runs smooth as silk. I've begun replacing the old goodie jupdate on my newer 1.7 sites and have begun to do the same with my 1.5's. I agree, pair it with Akeeba Backup!

One of the best extensions out there for security. Will recommend without hesitation... Buy the pro version if you're serious about security, it helps with the .htaccess as well.

In case you haven't read my Akeeba Backup review, we cannot give enough praise to Nicholas the developer of these awesome solutions.

We use Admin Tools to carry out the updating of Joomla, knowing that Akeeba Pro has a one site restore function just in case. The other features we don't use but it is always good to know that they are available if the time come when we need to use them.

Another Superb Solution by Nicholas, keep up the good work.

Another excellent extension from Akeeba. Clean, attractive interface and easy to use. It's amazing that for so little effort I can upgrade my site, lock down security and sleep well at night.

This is just what Joomla needed! Awesome one click upgrade of core and add on's! No more going through each Website and manually upgrading the site' core and what ever add on's are installed in the site.

My hats off to Nicholas K. Dionysopoulos!! Keep it up brother!

This extension is very useful to:
- keep Joomla website updated in an easy and quickly way
- apply an extra security against common hack attempts (e.g. change admin user id)
- optiming tables

I install it on every website I manage.

I seldom right comments on any component nowadays but this components functionality made me write a highly positive comment about it. I have been using this component for over an year now and it upgraded itself, as well as upgraded my Joomla core without any hassles. This is the kind of tool I was looking for as a built in in Joomla core but got it through this component. Also very easy to use for a person like me who is not into web development as core field. Many thanks to the developer/s
