Is there a way to backup just the forum rather than the whole site?

If you want backup the complete content of the forum use phpMyAdmin. Select all *_kunena tables and to export these. But this backup includes no css adjustments.

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 make copies (e.g. use phpMyAdmin to export the data tables) of the Kunena and Joomla users tables, and make a copy of all the files in the folder ../media/kunena/attachments, then you've backed up the forum data and you would able to restore this information on another website if that's what you wanted to do. The only other thing you would have to do is to install (or re-install) Kunena after transferring the data that you copied earlier. Does that make sense?
