Solved Kunena upgrade from 1.7 to 5.x with step 3.0.7 breaks
I know I'm late but I need to upgrade a Kunena Forum from 1.7 to an actual version ... so i read the instructions I found here in the forum.
I installed a fresh new Joomla 3.64 system and imported the users around 7500 ... works well
Now I copied all Kunena database tables to my fresh Joomla and changed prefixes of the tables.
I started to install Kunena 3.0.7 and than the installation breaks after Recounting forum statistics
the forum has ≈17700 messages in ≈3500 topics
Hope somebody maybe had the same problem at that installation progress step and can help?
thank you very much!!!
I installed a fresh new Joomla 3.64
Kunena 3.0.7 will not work with Joomla 3.6.4. To skip this step and try it with Kunena 4.0.12, then upgrade to Kunena 5.0
In principle it should also work, directly from Kunena 1.7 to Kunena 5.0
now I checked with a script kunena user table if user exist in joomla user table and deleted a handful if not
I also checked posts if that users had one ...
than checked kunena messages too if there are userid's with no user in kunena user table ...
so made sure that users exist in joomla user and kunena messages tables but no success at the end, same error
are there any other parts in database that will be processed in the function that aborts?
Many many thanks for help!
than the database update runs through 4.0.12 ...
after that I'll get to the same error as with 3.0.7 it breaks at same step like shown in my first post ...
1. Create a new Joomla 3.6.4 test installation
2. To import only the Kunena tables from your old instllation
3. Install/Upgrade right up to Kunena 5.0
When it works you have a forum without your users now.
1. Remove all kunena_tables on your migrated page
2. Install Kunena 5.0 new
3. Remove again all kunena_tables and import the kunena_tables from your new test installation
4. Go in backend to Kunena -> Tools and synchronisize all users and statistics
When the Joomla user tables are correct should be all ok now.
than deinstal kunena in (v1) and remove kunena tables. install a plain kunena 5.0 in (v1) and import kunena tables from (v2)
will let you now if I tried in the next days ...
Tank you very much for your time and support!
I set up a new plain Joomla system (v2), installed Kunena 4.0.12 (I used before for the first system (v1) were update breaks).
Than I imported my users and Kunena tables to Joomla (v2) from (v1) synced users and than forum "works" with admin access
only "base" statistics are not shown at the bottom (total messages, subjects, sections and so on) The statistic page with most popular threads, users etc. seems to work.
I tried Kunena tools "recount statistics" and it breaks with an SQL-Error:
Illegal mix of collations (utf8_general_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_mysql500_ci,IMPLICIT) for operation '=' SQL=UPDATE #__kunena_aliases AS a INNER JOIN #__kunena_categories AS c ON a.alias = c.alias SET a.item = c.id WHERE a.type='catid'
Updated to Kunena 5.0.3 runs without error.
Recount statistics brings same error ... so I changed collations for alias #__kunena_categories to utf8_general_ci and it goes proper. But no effect to "base" statistics
Than I looked in the Kunena tables and found that all tables that already exist in v 1.7 have different collation (utf8_general_mysql500_ci) compared to original new/plain Kunena v4 / v5 (utf8_general_ci) for varchar and text cells.
Maybe that is the reason why installation/update from 1.7 to 4/5 breaks? Because installation breaks at recount statistic and it also didn't worked with the Kunena tool too.
For the "base" statistic not showing, I wouldn't suppose that it has any belonging to that problem!? Because it is "only" counting some IDs anywhere?
Many thanks for your good job!!!
