Question Joomlaboard (Joomla 1.0.11) Migration to Kunena (Joomla 1.5) Questions

9 years 4 months ago #1 by Mongoose

Novice Joomla User
Desired end-state - Joomla 1.0.11 with joomlaboard migrated to Joomla 1.5
with Kunena.
I plan to use mtwMigrator to do the Joomla 1.1 to 1.5 portion.
Other desired end-state - I want to go from asking questions to helping

Not finding any specific step by step instructions that are detailed
enough for a novice like me, I'm bringing my concerns here.

I have a Joomla 1.0.11 website in a subdirectory /web with joomlaboard. I
successfully (maybe accidently) got it to migrate to Fireboard on the
Joomla 1.0.11. So, I have fireboard and joomlaboard both operational.
Naturally I took the whole site offline so as not to cause confusion.

The directory structure of the joomla 1.0.11 site is /web/

If I rename the Joomla 1.0.11 sub-dir to oldweb and create a new subdir, /web/
and install Joomla 1.5 in it, and then install Kunena in it, then how to
I do the migration from either joomlaboard or Fireboard into Kunena?

Any migration advice will be most appreciated.

Thanks much for developing Kunena and for providing this excellent website.

Joomla 1.0.11 to Joomla 1.5.22 is one exercise and you really need to look at the Joomla support site for how to go about that.

Joomlaboard: well that's a whole different species altogether and I don't know what you do about that. I know that the folks at Joomlapolis converted from Joomlaboard to Kunena 1.6 so we know it's feasible. You might get some hints by asking the site administrators over there. My guess is that, if you have Fireboard operational on your website, you should be able to upgrade from Fireboard to Kunena.

Planning and testing are the watchwords here. If you've got old Joomla 1.0 code running on your site, I think you're going to need to take a big broom to your site and clear out a lot of old clutter. Good luck.

We don't recommend K 1.5 in cases like yours; we recommend K 1.6.2.
