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 am not a review writer. Good or bad, i have done it 2-3 times so far. Guess what...I was compelled to review this extension as soon as i installed the extension. solved the common issues and a headache (converting all links to https). Awesome extension. I love it. It really gives the power and uses the spiderman web to tie all the parts in a single place. Hats off to the developer.
The tool works as described. Nicholas has accumulated a comprehensive collection of support documentation to assist with website management. He has been easily accessible via a secure ticket. A Natural teacher.

One of my MUST tools

Incredibly useful component. No problems, all commands executed in the blink of an eye, without ANY problems. Essential tool.
Well-written essential tool for your Joomla 1.5 site. Provides a level of security at the backend administrator, denying access to bots/hackers trying to identify your site. Allows you to easily change the name of the database tables denying hackers access. For these functions alone it receives an excellent five star rating.

One of the best!
