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.
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 But then I noticed Admin Tools also reported my Joomla version was out of date.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! :)
He dedication to his projects is above and beyond a lot of developers. I will continue to use his products with great certainty that my sites are running smoothly with his extensions.
Great work Nick!
It is a huge time saver to upgrade your Joomla site with one click, when you have Akeeba Backup installed it makes backup then upgrade as easy as pie.
Other tools like database repair and optimization from within the Joomla Admin & fixing file permissions with one click are awesome!
The Pro version has some security tools that are well worth the money, a small price to pay for the added protection ans peace of mind they provide.
