Kunena 6.0.8 Released (17 Jan 2023)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.0.8 [K 6.0.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.0 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 6.0.
Important How To Upgrade From Joomla 1.5 To 2.5 with Kunena
I know that there's been a few questions similar to this asked already, but I've tried following them and I don't seem to be getting anywhere.
Here's the story:
I've got a site that's running Joomla 1.5.22 with Kunena 1.6.4 that's badly in need of upgrading to Joomla 2.5 and I'd obviously like to upgrade Kunena along with this.
So far I've used Jupgrade to set up the 2.5 site and then I installed Kunena 2.0.1 on it. I then downloaded the Kunena mysql database and renamed the prefix from jos_ to j17_ which is the new database prefix.
I then dropped the original tables that were created from the install on the 2.5 and tried to upload the old amended database. However it just won't upload. I get various errors but especially this one
#1054 - Unknown column 'parent' in 'field list'
Can anyone give me a hand with this?
I'm not sure what's going on here, I'm not a database nor Kunena wizard
The site is turn2me.org and as you'll see from the site, it's imperative that all the content is kept, especially the forum.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Only thing is that kunena is now on version 2.0.1 so ...
I guess you first need to upgrade to 1.7 and than to 2.0
At this moment it looks that there are not that many kunena 2.0 templates yet
Thank you and Merry Christmas
Export the 24 x Joomla 1.5 Kunena databases with "Quick" and "SQL" options (Note: you can multiple select tables and export them as one file):
change the table prefixes by searching and replacing all of the old prefixes e.g. jos_ to j25_ inside the sql (you can do this with text editor).
then delete the 22 x Joomla 2.5 Kunena databases. Import the Joomla 1.5 Kunena databases into Joomla 2.5 and copy the files in /media/kunena/attachments/
at the end you will see some error on front-end but all you have to do is to enter every category in the backend and re-apply the permissions for the category, that's all.
thanks a lot
