The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 184.108.40.206 [K 6.1.3] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x/4.3.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1.0 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.1
Solved Transferring data from an old database
a.) I think it was kunena 2,0 and joomla 2.5 but is the anyway to tell from the database?
b.) To transfer data from the database that i set up and have the data on...but no site, what tables do i need to copy and do i need to convert them? Sorry it is a lot to ask but it is a lot of data to loose if i dont do it?
This question gets asked a lot on this forum. Because there is no standard answer to these questions, the Kunena team members can really only make suggestions.Generally-speaking, these kinds of operations usually take a couple of days to complete and, quite often, they are tricky.
My general answer to these questions is given in msg #4 of Copying my forum from a J! 2.0 site to a J! 3.0 site. I hope this helps.
You need more than just the database; you also need the files that were uploaded by the users of the old forum as well.
1) Of course you can retrieve the contents of your old forum with, or without, any uploaded attachments. If you don't have the attachments then the migrated forum will work quite well without them; the messages will just be missing the "attached content", that's all.
2) The database stores, among other things, the text of the messages. Attached images or other attached/upladed files are not stored in the database; they are stored as files. This, therefore, means that your user avatar images will, likewise, be lost. But that should be a major headache, should it?
Does this answer your questions?
