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 valid subscription (starting at EUR 7.79) to request support. However, its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the forum is free.
I love its ability to change the default super-admin user as well as the database prefix. That's security 101 for every Joomla! site.
Akeeba's support is amazing and their docs are the most complete I've ever seen.
Thanks, Nicholas, for another awesome extension!
The only significant point that is not covered (and is present in the Pro edition) is a secure htaccess file, but you can easily get a master file which was edited by the same developer, from the Joomla Security Centre and modify it for your site.
This is such an excellent piece of software, along with the other offering from the developer (Akeeba Backup) that I am seriously considering buying a Pro version just to express my support, though I dont really need the additional benefits of the Pro edition.
The security features point out things which you may not have thought about and are really easy to use.
Will be installing this on all future joomla sites, its a must have!
Thank a lot to the Akeeba developer, even for Akeeba Backup, which is another of my favorite extension.
Thank you for taking the time to create this masterpiece. When you get my donation. Have a few beers. It is well deserved. I'm still in shock!
You're welcome! Thank you for your kind words and your donation :)
