Question Closing site - Need to archive Kunena Forum posts

Our business is closing down the Joomla website and moving to a commercially managed CMS. Is there anyway to save our Kunena forum posts as they contain business discussions of importance for history purposes?

I see many posts about migrating a forum to Kunena, but what about away from Kunena?

Thanks!

It is possible to salvage you Kunena forum data.

As I have written before , there are essentially three parts to the Kunena forum:

  1. Kunena data (tables);
  2. Joomla users; and
  3. forum attachments

If you salvage those things then you, pretty much, have everything. As you would probably be aware , Kunena is a forum component developed for Joomla. Without Joomla Kunena won't work but that's something you will have to consider as part of your overall business strategy.

I hope that answers your question.

For archiving the site, you could keep the old site but prevent logins into it.

There are a few migration scripts from Kunena to a few other forums, but unfortunately I've never kept track on those.

Look into using akeeba backup to create a archive of you entire site that you can re-install if required further down the line, if you use this remember to test your backup first.
