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 Change table type from MyISAM to InnoDB to enable encryption

5 months 2 weeks ago #1 by sohopros
For Kunena (v5.1.16) we are currently using MariaDB 10.2 with the MyISAM engine. We would like to switch to the InnoDB engine so that we can enable encryption of data at rest. Does anyone know if using ALTER table to switch from MyISAM to InnoDB will cause any issues with existing tables?

Yes, it can cause a number of troubles. However, troubles are rare.

All the 'troubles' I know of are listed: mariadb.com/kb/en/converting-tables-from-myisam-to-innodb

(Do not change tables in the databases mysql or information_schema or performance_schema; that will cause serious trouble.)

Thanks for getting back to me. Let me ask a different question. This is going to sound dumb but is there any reason Kunena can't use an InnoDB engine for its tables?
- JA
