Our freely available Admin Tools Core will detect, notify you about new Joomla! releases, fix your files' and directories' permissions, protect your administrator directory with a password, change your database prefix, migrate links pointing to your old domain on-the-fly and perform database maintenance, all with a single click.

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 subscription to request support. However, its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the public tickets is free.

Very interesting for starting up a site. Less once site is up and running;

Ease of use

very easy

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review! You are very correct, our free of charge Admin Tools Core only has some very basic functionality which is only useful while setting up your site. That's where the "Admin Tools" name originally came from: it's a set of tools for site administrators.

Functionality

This extension is an absolute MUST HAVE for any Joomla site. It has helped to not only improve performance on our site, but has blocked countless attacks and attempted hacks to our sites. If you only buy one extension for your Joomla site it must be this one.

The .htaccess maker alone is a reason to go with Pro (let alone all of the other goodies).

Ease of use

The extension is extremely easy to use, but you should have some knowledge of security hardening to get the full benefits from it.

Akeeba Backup Core is the most widely used open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server, making it ideal not only for backups but also for site transfers or even deploying sites to your clients' servers. Akeeba Backup creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and an installer similar in function to the standard Joomla! installer. The backup and restore process is AJAX powered to avoid server timeouts, even with huge sites. Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database, or only your files. Akeeba Backup is the reliable, easy to use, open source backup solution for your Joomla! site. Akeeba Backup has won six J.O.S.C.A.R. awards at J and Beyond. Download it for free to find out why! Joomla! 3.4 and later, PHP 5.4 and later (including PHP 7). We have older versions for Joomla! 1.5 to 3.3 and older PHP versions on our site. Features: The Configuration Wizard configures itself for optimal operation with your site, automatically. The fastest and most reliable native PHP backup engine. One click backup. Integrated restoration for same server restoration. Site transfer wizard. Transfer your site between servers fast and easily. Restore with Akeeba Kickstart (free of charge script): restore extracting the backup directly on the server; no need to upload thousands of files by FTP! Choose between standard ZIP or highly efficient JPA archive format. Exclude specific files, folders. Exclude specific database tables or their contents. Unattended backup mode (CRON job scheduling), fully compatible with Webcron.org Archives can be restored on any host. Useful for transferring your site between subdomains/hosts or even to/from your local testing server (e.g. XAMPP, WAMPServer, MAMP, etc). and much, much more! Note: The Akeeba Backup Core component is free of charge, its support is not. You need a valid (paid) subscription to request support. Its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the public tickets is free of charge. Note 2: Only the Akeeba Backup Core edition listed here is free of charge. In our site you can also find Akeeba Backup Professional which requires paying for a subscription to download. Please note that it is a different product. This JED listing only applies to Akeeba Backup Core, the free of charge version. *** IF YOU CAN'T FIND HOW TO ENABLE A FEATURE LISTED HERE, PLEASE READ THE (FREE) DOCUMENTATION AND WATCH OUR VIDEO TUTORIALS! ***
