Hey!


Is there a way to de-activate the Admin Tools?

I'd like to allow access to the backend to the support-team of my template due to some problems.

Thanks!


Regards,
Vlad

Vlad,

There are three steps:
  1. Disable the plugin System - Admin Tools
  2. Rename the .htaccess file in the root of your site, then rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess (The htaccess.txt file is the "plain vanilla" file that Joomla! ships with the distribution file
  3. Rename the .htaccess file in the /administrator folder to disable the extra password protection

To enable Admin Tools again, publish the plugin and rename the files back.
