great extension

Posted on 14 August 2015

It's great tool, most of you need, you've got out of the box, and even if not support will not leave you on your own with your issues

Ease of use

As a very sofisticated tool, and this one is, you need to adapt and get some knowhow as: why and what for... But atfter all it goes better!


Just simply GREAT!


good enaugh, it's not an easy subject, so should be sometimes a book :) but they always guide you anyway

I used this to: as we are on Joomla, should say for a few Joomla sites different versions, but also for other CMS, it's really sth what takes off lots of pain in your a** :)

The new centrora 5.0.7 joomla update does not work. After update in backend centrora just has a white page. Frontend is a white page, too.

Ease of use

Not good use with the new update.

Amazing program, it works right out of the box and does everything they say it does.

Ease of use

I had no problems configuring the system and when I needed advice they were on top of it and fast!


TOP NOTCH! I can not say enough how fast and professional these guys are! It takes a lot to get me to write a review but people need to know


VAST! Everything you need to know is available in the documentation and on the website.

I used this to: Securing Joomla Installations.

Absolutly not free!

Posted on 01 May 2015

Never able to try it because it's not free, so no try!

Ease of use

Very complicated, they only want you to subscribe or be an affiliate!

I used this to: Trying to verify if I have any malware or other bad thing in my files.

Good Start

Posted on 13 September 2014

It seems to be an excellent program which is configured to work primarily for Wordpress but is being adapted to work with Joomla as well, but not quite there yet, I say that as all the features point towards a Wordpress site functionality, I am hoping with more input that this program will become a great one instead of just a good one, I am using it with great expectations !!!

This plugin has a good start from being a only WordPress plugin to a Component for Joomla to. However, it is still a work in progress. Major improvement would be to be able to update the existing component. That part doesn't work yet.

Owner's reply: Hi B8 Europe,

Re: Major improvement would be to be able to update the existing component

-- Do you mean the automatic update function for the component? If so, we will add this in future release.
If not, could you please send a feature request to our support center here:

Best regards
Centrora team

Very good
