Introduction

Site Security

Admin Tools is a true Swiss Army knife for your site. 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.

I used this to: Thanks a lot... I am using it to optimized and check my file permissions from time-to-time... I hope you could include in the Free version the HTACCESS :)
Functionality
A lot of tools to secure your website, thanks to this extension i can be sure that my websites are not hacked
Ease of use
The extension has a clean and simple interface
Support
Professional and effective
I used this to: All my websites
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.

Excellent security. I noticed a lot of spam users like a admin. And i had deleted them. And I cleaned all spams. Thanks...

A must to have

Running a site without it, no way.

I use Admin Tools and Akeeba Backup for all our sites and it's a lifesaver.



Akeeba, keep up the good work
I rate this extension highly and use this as standard on all the sites I develop.

Very cool tools

I really like this and other tools by AKEEBA. Unfortuanately they decided to remove the JOOMLA UPDATE feature in this tool.



AKEEBA always had it right, even when my backend was saying differently.



Please reinstate JOOMLA UPDATE and then it is back to 5 stars!!
Owner's reply: 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.
