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.
The documentation package should be the standard for all developers. I rarely see such detail and thought put into guiding and educating the user.
I will be purchasing the "Pro" package when I move to J! 1.6.
It has a temp directory clean option, will purge old sessions, and can call a repair and optimize directive for your MySQL database. A few more neat features--but something totally useful for ongoing site admin. I have installed and use this on all of my sites. Great job!
Thank you very much I definitely will check out other software from this developer as it is easy to use easy to configure and just works.
highly recommended. I would be happy to pay for this software.
Now, that's all I was expecting. But then I noticed Admin Tools also reported my Joomla version was out of date. Cool; I try to stay on top of it, but it's a pain in the rump to have to manually overwrite files by FTP. So I clicked the update button in Admin Tools, and to my surprise it automatically grabbed the patch file for Joomla, extracted it and installed it on my installation. I am now using the latest version of Joomla in only a few mouse clicks.
I was also shocked to find there are some great security enhancements added to Joomla by way of Admin Tools. Things like improved security using htaccess for the Administrator area. I mean, it's all "simple stuff", but putting it all in one place and making it so I don't have to do it manually... THAT is fantastic.
Across my multiple sites, this tool is going to save me a great deal of time, and will also help me effectively manage my Joomla version. FABULOUS.
Thank you so much for making this tool free. While I probably wouldn't have bought it if it were a commercial app, now that I've tried it I am going to have to track down a way to donate as a small thank you for what you've provided.
Great work! Keep the features coming! :)
