The software is GPL; buying a single subscription you can install it on as many sites as you want and keep it running even after your subscription expires, without encrypted code, domain limitations or other such nuisances.
The protection, the documentation are very complete.
You must read all the documentation before using it and after that it is very good.
The updates from my sites does not work all the time but I had the url and I can use it.
Bravo and thank you.
If you want to protect your website you have two choices:
A. Shot off your server, or
B. Use ATP
NOTE - The best updating is uninstall old version, clean system and install the new version to eliminate any possible problems.
The rest I can say with full confidence I sleep very well in the night.
Nick is helpful, but you have to configure the ATP for your needs.
Thanks again for this program.
The Web Application Firewall is the killer feature of this extension - the e-mail alerts that you can set up for security threats are invaluable. The ability to give the administrator login page a special location (like /administrator?impossible_to_guess1989) is also an important feature. It also contains a number of tools for stuff you should already be doing even if you don't have the extension, such as changing the db prefix and password protecting the admin directory.
AdminTools Pro was relatively easy to set up, and the documentation is extensive.
Thank you for all the hard work, Akeeba!
I really hope that with the admin tools will be over now
Many greetings from classic park
While Admin Tools can certainly help towards your goal, I strongly encourage you to read our site unpacking walkthrough and follow all of its instructions. It's available on AkeebaBackup.com under Documentation, Walkthroughs.
Had a lot of plugins running to do what this component does at once. It's worth every penny - that's for sure.
Also want to mention the outstanding support - even for non paying user :-) Many others can learn from these guys.
Akeeba admin tools pro is everything it promises, along with fast, friendly service when I needed some help.
It simplifies admin tasks, setting permissions, creating .htaccess and wrapping a wall around the site to prevent those nasty bots from munching into my files.
I learn't a lot from the well written manual about security threats, what they are and how to prevent them and highly recommend this component and Akeeba back up.
Well worth the money for the pro version!
Nicholas K. Dionysopoulos impressed me so much with his personal quick response while I had the free versions, that I felt I should invest with the "AKEEBADELUXE" (Pro versions of Admin Tools & Akeeba Back up), I'm so happy with the pro versions.
I'd rate the developer as A+, regular updates to accommodate Joomla development, works as advertised, intuitive, good documentation, and fantastic quick support.
If you've used the free versions, go pro, definitely worth the extra features for the small investment!
While Joomla security is a moving target, the developer modifies, changes and stays one step in front of the jerks. Any issues are promptly dealt with by personal attention by the developer himself. In many cases within an hour.
Thank you for the awesome package.
I could not have been happier with this purchase, I did not have time to go through the manual and submitted a ticket, I could not believe how fast the response was and it was fixed immediately. If you do not have any of the Akeeba tools installed, do it now :)
2. The documentation is well-written, richly detailed, and clear as a button hook in a well. Nicholas provides nothing short of a crash course in Joomla security. My advice: take the time to read it through - it's a real eye-opener.
3. Given its modest price, this extension provides incredible value.
Anyone who takes security seriously - and we all should - will appreciate this extension.
While no security protocol can stop a really determined attacker, Admin Tools Professional brilliantly mixes things up in vintage transparent lockdown, effectively shutting the door on every known Joomla! exploit. To a would-be attacker, the message is simple: “Not here. Go somewhere else.”
And that’s just the security component!
Admin Tools Professional also does all the heavy lifting on numerous tedious chores that tend to get put off until the last possible moment of inevitability, including 1-Click Joomla! core updates and Database maintenance. In fact, its functionality feature set was downright intimidating at first glance. But amazingly, it installs quickly and easily just like any Joomla! extension; and deployment is a snap, guided by first-rate documentation that seconds as a treasure trove of knowledge that might otherwise take a few lightyears to acquire.
Remarkably, and to my delight, sites that literally crawled at agonizingly slow page-load speeds have suddenly come to life, thanks to Admin Tools’ many understated optimization features.
How a single extension that does so much still manages to maintain an incredibly small footprint and zero performance overhead is simply beyond me. It is so light, in fact, it’s easy to forget it’s there. I can’t imagine not deploying it on every single personal or client’s site.
Now, there are extensions in JEDland that individually offer one functional subset or the other of the multitude of features, but none that I’m aware of provides the comprehensive reach and scope of Admin Tools Professional in a single, clean and highly integrated war chest.
From one newbie to another, this is truly exemplary software no Joomla! site should be without.. It is incredibly inexpensive protection for all the other investments and commitments you make in the work you do. In my view, it just wouldn’t make any sense not to spend a paltry $30 to protect far greater investment in various template and extension clubs to the tune of several hundred dollars and counting, not to speak of my time and sanity. Clearly, Admin Tools Professional is easily worth many times its subscription cost. And if voting my pocketbook also helps encourage continued development and emulation of its pedigree of excellence, so much the better.
Nicholas, you are the real deal! Thank you so much for your commitment to the Joomla! community.
