  • Get this

A system level plugin for Joomla v1.7, v2.5 and now v3.x that once a day optimizes your database's tables so as to keep your site running at its peek performance by getting rid of the MySQL database overhead.

This has only been tested on Joomla v1.7 and up.

v1.0: Initial Release.
v1.1: Bug fix - thanks to Ebo Eppenga
v1.2: tested on Joomla 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2



P.S.: If you are going to rate the plugin, please comment or contact me [] if you're having issues with it. [Someone rated it 1 out of 5 without any comments/review and without getting in contact with me so I couldn't help them :( ].

Credit: This is based on work by and their Joomla v1.5 plugin which they no longer maintain.

The plugin worked perfectly, without any changes required. The code required to optimize each table in a while loop is very simple, and works flawlessly in this method.

One suggestion:

Throughout the code there are commented blocks to show the list of tables being optimized. These should be set as a param in the plugin to turn them on and off...instead of needing to change the plugin code directly.

Easy to download and install. However, the results were not encouraging after enabling the plugin. The website was directed to some other website hosted on the same server.

I do not why and how the plugin redirected the website to other site not linked to it.

It is not recommended for newbies or administrators without access to server.

Owner's reply: Hi Skpandey,

Interesting (negative) side effect that I did not encounter while testing on any of the servers? are you on shared hosting ? do you have multiple databases setup associated with this domain?

I'm trying to understand what caused this so that I can alter the plugin to have this behavior not be an issue...

Please update me via the email address posted above.

Simplify your Admin Panel v2.5: An Administrator back-end module for Joomla v2.5 that allows you to hide/remove classes/IDs from the view of a or multiple users. You can publish multiple modules with different settings to affect different users differently. Useful to simplify the Administrator environment for new users and can be used in combination with Joomla ACL system which doesn't allow you to hide certain areas. This is based on work by Andy Sharman of and his Joomla v1.5 module. This has only been tested on Joomla v2.5. [It may work in Joomla v1.6 and v1.7 but do so at your own risk]. Since I am NO expert in PHP by any length of the imagination, I offer this software AS IS and recommend that everyone [as they should always] make backups of their files and database. [Akeeba Backup is a very nice choice for this and even includes a free version]. Sincerely, Emmanuel.
