The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 18.104.22.168 [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
Question Migrate from K 1.5.9 on J! 1.5 to K 3.0 on J! 2.5
i need to migrate my-clients website from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5, currently they are running Kunea v1.5.9
do i need to update this version before i can migrate to joomla 2-5 and is there any documentation that i should read before or can i just import the tables into Joomla 2-5, install latest version of Kunea - any advice would be appreciated
thanks for any help in advance
Also use the search feature, migrating kunena from 1.5 to 2.5 has been asked many times with an array of solutions.
nutter308 is right. We have discussed this issue many times (probably hundreds of times).
This is not a hard job. This is a job that probably takes at least 5 or 6 hours ... it could even take longer. If you want to spend a day or two (or possibly longer) then there is a lot of advice on the forum that will help you. If you would prefer to give the job to someone else, there are many people who will give you a professional service.
You ask if there is any "documentation" on migrating from K 1.5.9 (on J! 1.5) to K 3.0 (on J! 2.5). The answer is that there is no formal documentation written by the Kunena team on migrating from K a.b.c on J! d.e.f to K g.h.i on J! k.l.m.
The simplest advice that I can give you is to trust your instincts. If you want to give your migration the best possible chance of success, update Kunena on your J! 1.5 site
(a) update the Joomla software on your J! 1.5 site to J! 1.5.26, first; and then
(b) update the Kunena software on your J! 1.5.26 site to K 2.0.4.
I don't want to migrate 2,000 users BUT from the posts i have read here i will have to migrate the users that have posts on the forum, do i understand that correctly?
I cant seem to work our from the back-end who has posts and who doesn't, given there are 2,000 users what do you suggest is the best way. Migrate all of them?
I will upgrade first Joomla 1.5 version of Kunea from 1.5.9 to 2.0.4 as you suggested before I doing anything else
i do appreciate any time and help
I'm not sure how to respond to that. I think you're over-complicating matters. Look at the overall strategy. The overall strategy is to achieve a forum that works. If I were in your shoes I would be concentrating first on that and then leave questions about identifying and removing "dead" users from your website to later.

You understand that correctly, yes.

There are ways of working this out, if you really want to invest your time (and possibly money) in this but, as I mentioned at the outset, does knowing the answer now substantially contribute towards the overall strategy?

Yes, that's what I would do.

It is going to take you (or someone else, if you pay them to do the work for you) at least a whole day to work through everything that has to be worked through in order to upgrade your old J! 1.5 site to the point where you can then move the data to the site's new home. After you convert the old J! 1.5 data, you then have a lot of tidying to do. The first time that I did this, it took me about three days to complete the task. I can do it a lot quicker these days, of course, but it still takes a long time.
thank you again for your kind help
There are many people who provide this kind of service—I am such a person—and the cost depends on how much time is involve in the preparation work. As a ballpark figure, you're probably looking at a couple of hundred dollars.
