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.

× Topics must relate to a currently supported version of Kunena. If you are unsure what is the current supported version of Kunena, please go to the download page.

If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.

Question Cache and User Sessions Issue

Hello.
I have recently migrated a Joomla Kunena website to a new server and I think something is wrong with my cache/session settings.

Some users get logged out after around 15 minutes, and they cannot access the server entirely, but then after a few refreshes, it works again

My questions are:
1. What are the best cache settings to use (default)
2. What are the best cache setting on joomla to use (default)

I would like to acheive that to at least have a starting point.

Thank you

Kunena 5.0.11 is not supported anymore. I'm not sure if this version still works correctly with Joomla 3.9.13. If you upgrade Kunena, do it on a test page first.

It seems it's chosen the default session time of Joomla. Joomla and Kunena session times must be set to the same time period (for Joomla in minutes and Kunena in seconds).

Thank you.
So my next steps should be:
1. Backup
2. Upgrade Kunena
3. Double-check cache settings on both Joomla and Kunena

No, the Session Lifetime must be the same.

Understood. I have made the changes and they are both now 1800 which seems to be the default.

Thank you so much for your assistance and advice. I will be upgrading Kunena and it seems the Joomla version also requires updates.

Thank you.
