TOPIC: Joomla/Kunena upgrade

Joomla/Kunena upgrade 1 year 6 months ago #1

I upgraded joomla to 2.5, and on the front end everything appeared normal. In the backend I realized my Kunena component was gone. So what I did was download the latest version of Kunena, I was told that you could reinstall it and not lose any of the data. Well, I reinstalled it, but unfortunately it didn't gather the data from my pre existing forum that is on the website. So even if I were to do it I would lose all the information on the website. Do you know any way to try and import the data somehow to the current version?

Alright, I used jUpgrade to upgrade my site from 1.5 to 2.5. Disregard the first post. It didn't really do anything on the front end so I have to redo it. It did not transfer kunena over all all from what I see. Kunena was at version 1.6 on my old site, and I installed the latest version on my 2.5 site. Now what I need to do is migrate the kunena tables over from what I have read, but I am having some trouble figuring out how to do this.

Remove Kunena 2 from your new site, install Kunena 1.6, then port over your Kunena database and upgrade to Kunena 2.0.4.

Trying to manually change the Kunena database from 1.6 to Kunena 2 would be a very long process. The upgrade from 1.6 to 2 would do it for you in a few seconds.

Hi,

I would upgrade Kunena 1.6 to Kunena 2.0.4 (NOT Kunena 2.0.3) on Joomla 1.5 site (BACKUP FIRST), then install Kunena 2.0.4 on Joomla 2.5 site.

After that use PHPMyAdmin to export and import tables from J1.5 (K 2.0.4) to J2.5 (K 2.0.4)

Okay, this is what I have done, I am SO close. I upgraded my site to 1.5.26 so I could upgrade kunena. I upgraded kunena. Then I ran jupgrade that did it's thing. I have to reinstall kunena on the jupgrade site which is fine because it keeps all of the data.

It's awesome, it keeps the same layout, and it carries over the forum posts. However, when I log in I get an error message or if I click on a post. Do you know what the issue could be? Here is the link. flexus.com/main/jupgrade/index.php/forum-105

@swerls i just had a look at you forum and i can read all messages without any problems!

in case that you consider that the top menu disappearing is a bug it isn't! in Menu Item Manager: [mainmenu] rename the Alias for the forum link to something else ... "forum2" for example and see if this solves your problem
