Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Backup Kunena

Backup Kunena was created by PrestonP
I am working on a Joomla/Kunena site for the first time. I have plenty of experience with Nuke sites. My problem is that both Joomla and Kunena are really old versions on my customers site and I plan to upgrade them all to the latest. I am not sure if the site is split up somehow or really what is going on but after taking a site backup I cannot log onto the forums on the backup. The backup seems to house the main Joomla site but where do I find the Kunena forums on the backup?

For example the forums seem to be located here:
https://www.millergraphicsonline.com/atv/atv.html
But the backup will not go there and I cannot find any html files on the server:
https://www.millergraphicsonline.com/sitebackup/atv

Are the forums located elsewhere?
I will not continue any updates until I have all backups accounted for!

G'day, PrestonP, and welcome to Kunena.

This problem that you are having with the "backup" site is not a Kunena problem.

For example, The "ice house" link on the main site www.millergraphicsonline.com/atv/the-ice-house.html works but it has the same symptom on the "backup" site as your "Kunena" problem. So does "The Bunk House" link and "Little Sahara Pizza and Wings".

What, exactly, have you "backed up" in the backup site? How was this "backup site" created in the first place?

I simply copied the whole root of their website and duplicated it onto a new root folder named sitebackup. It sounds as if the Joomla site and Kunena are on two separate servers somehow. Like I said, I searched the whole backup for any .html files to find for instance "the-ice-house.html" and found nothing.

A better way to backup your website is to use a component like Akeeba Backup.

I will try that but the server is running PHP4, I can activate PHP5 for akeeba but it will change the server defaults to php5. Does Joomla and Kunena need PHP4? I would reckon PHP5 didn't exist back when Joomla 1.5.14 and Kunena 1.5.4 were made.

The easiest way to backup your website is to use Akeeba Backup.
