Hello everybody!

I've the problem in subject, and really don't know how to solve it.
I have to migrate a Joomla 1.0 site with 1500 users to a new Joomla 1.5 platform, but I also have to save the forum.
I read around the web that the roadmap is

JoomlaBoard -> Fireboard 1.0.3 -> Kunena 1.0 -> Kunena 1.5

but I'm blocked on the first step, 'cos I haven't undesrtood yet how to convert sql tables, once Fireboard is installed.

I've installed Fireboard, but there's no wizard to migrate from JoomlabBoard.

Is there anybody that wants to help me (and all people like me) to migrate from JoomlaBoard to Kunena?

I know that I'm not the only person that need it, maybe an official script to make this can help the project. In my honest opinion forums with many users and threads can't migrate starting from 0, so migrate all data is the only way to migrate to Kunena!

PLEASE Help me.. I'll be glade of you, and offer a beer, I promise! :)

PS: Sorry for my scolar english, hope it's all understandable :)

You just need to convert tables to FireBoard and copy all the avatars and attachments to /media/kunena/attachments/legacy

After that you're ready to install latest Kunena and you're ready.

Just unpack FB 1.0.3 and look at the PDF file for help:

3.1. JoomlaBoard
1. First, unpack the archive on your local computer. First, unpack the archive on your local
computer.
2. Go to your Joomla! Administration > Installer > Componenets
3. Select the “component_Fireboard_Forum_1.0.3.zip” package and click on “Install”.
4. After a successful installation, go to Components > Fireboard Forum
5. Once you enter the control panel, at top of the page you will notice a dialogue is asking you
weather you want to upgrade from “Joomlaboard” or a “Clean Install”. Click on “Import from
Joomlaboard” and Fireboard will automatically import your database and file structure.

I know this procedure, but it stops at the first step.
Fireboard don't give me the choice to upgrade from jb, in the control panel, and of course, in all pages of fb admin section, nothing appears.

I discovered the query that make the conversion from line 2208 in the admin.fireboard.php (I attached a copy of it).

This function is called by line 99, that I think is the line I'd like to see..
Maybe the if condition (that I can't understand) is not satisfy, and fireboard don't show me this option. :angry:

Please help me.. :blush:

The idea is to transform the code from line 2208 into a sql query to send directly to phpmyadmin and transform all tables in Fireboard-friendly ones.. does it appear possible?

I just looked at FB 1.0.3 code and it seems that migration does not work.. :(

This is how you should get JoomlaBoard converted to Kunena:

1) Create directories for avatars and attachments (relative to Joomla root):
* images/fbfiles/avatars
* images/fbfiles/files
* images/fbfiles/images

2) Copy avatars and attachments from JoomlaBoard to Kunena:
* components/com_joomlaboard/avatars -> images/fbfiles/avatars
* components/com_joomlaboard/uploaded/files -> images/fbfiles/files
* components/com_joomlaboard/uploaded/images -> images/fbfiles/images

3) Set directory and file permissions if needed..

4) Run SQL queries, which can be found below

5) Install Kunena 1.5.6 (K1.5.7 has a bug which prevents migration)

6) Install Kunena 1.5.7

7) Optional: export all jos_fb table definitions and send them to me (I want to see if they are OK)

8) Kunena should be working by now, if I didn't miss anything..

Good luck! If there are any issues, I'd like to solve them to get these instructions complete.


These are the queries (import tables to FB 1.0.0 data model).. Just remember to replace #__ with your joomla database prefix (jos_):
