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.

Admin Tools (AKEEBA)

Easy as 123... If your looking to update from Joomla 1.5.23 to 1.5.25 and above Akeeba Admin Tools is exactly what you need to get the job done (considering so many forum posts are asking where the 1.5.23 update package can be found). The component is flawless! BTW - Be sure to use Akeeba back up before upgrading!!!!

Kudos + 5 Stars - to the development staff at Akeeba, Keep up the good work!

This does exactly as advertised and provides a neat console to control its actions. It is well worth adding to your website.

Brilliant extension. No Joomla user should be without it.

More than perfect

What can I say... just perfect. After installing Joomla this is the first extention I install!

Thank you Nicholas!
I use Joomla almost exclusively on websites I build for my clients and have not had any major problems until the other day. I had two websites in progress for clients and for some reason, both of them had something go wrong during setup. I was unable to use some of the components. I had a feeling that it was a corrupt core file somewhere but did not want to go through the process of a reinstall of the site. I searched for a way to repair the install and found Admin Tools. I installed it on both sites and ran the reinstall and it fixed both sites. Saved me a lot of time!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!!

The combination of such excellent functions with a so easy to use user interface is unfortunately rare. I wish all extensions where done with the same quality as Admin Tools! Five and half stars!
Exellent component, 10x guys :)Thank you so continue to work :)

Flawless, Time Saving, Easy
