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.
AKEEBA always had it right, even when my backend was saying differently.
Please reinstate JOOMLA UPDATE and then it is back to 5 stars!!
The Joomla! Update feature was removed from Admin Tools because its code was contributed back to Joomla!. In fact, it was included in Joomla! 2.5.15 and 3.2.0 (and later versions will still have it, of course). Think again before you penalise an extension developer because he decided to contribute his code, for free, to the very software product you use for your business. I would recommend that you read the "Motives for writing free software" (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/fs-motives.html) to understand why the blackmail tone of your review is inappropriate and deeply offensive to this developer.
There is no words to explain how many times this component paid for itself and the other solutions I use. You have to go for PRO version and support them! Not only do you get a mass amount of extra features but you get to support them to ensure this solutions stay with Joomla forever! Thank you to all @ Akeeba!
i was a little nervous to use the htaccess stuff, but tried it anyway, and it works perfectly.
I don't normally write reviews, but this extension is just too good to ignore. In fact, this entire functionality should be written right into the joomla core.
I liked this so much, I bought the backup extension as well, and I'm just as happy with that, and for the record, I'm not easy to please.
Do yourself a favor, Just buy this and the backup extension, and the vast majority of your headaches with your joomla sites will evaporate.
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
