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 process is simple - Install Joomla then install admin tools.
Its easy to configure and makes keeping your site up to date with the latest versions of Joomla and Admin Tools very simple.
Its a shame I can only give you 5 stars (Excellent!) - It should be 10
I love it! Installed without a hitch. It let me know there was an update available. It downloaded and installed it.
Of course I've noticed Joomla 2.5 has updating built in. I'm happy to see Joomla is up with the times of built-in automated updates/update notification.
