Question error: "Kunena Installation Failed!"
I tried to unpack the zip and install the system plugin first as suggested in this thread www.kunena.org/forum/k5-0-support-archiv...t-installation-error . Then I installed succesfully all the other extensions from the 'packages' folder. But when I go to the kunena backend I get this screen:
I set error_reporting to minimum in php.ini and in the Joomla global config set error reporting to 'none'. Still same thing when installing the zippackage and same screen when going to the backend.
Browser cache is disabled, so that won't mess things up.
How to get this working again?
[11-Apr-2017 08:29:32 America/New_York] PHP Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/username/public_html/libraries/joomla/updater/update.php on line 267
Which is time stamped at the exact time of the update failure. So the question is, Joomla error or Kunena error?
We've encountered this error on a MySql database with a utf8mb4_unicode_ci collation.
The issue comes from the query that tries to create the #__kunena_attachments table because the index for this table is too long. To fix this, we've previously created the table through this query where we've reduced the size of the 'filename' and 'filename_real' columns from 255 to 190:
CREATE TABLE `#__kunena_attachments` (`id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,`mesid` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',`userid` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',`protected` tinyint(4) NOT NULL default '0',`hash` char(32) NULL,`size` int(11) NULL,`folder` varchar(255) NOT NULL,`filetype` varchar(20) NOT NULL,`filename` varchar(190) NOT NULL,`filename_real` varchar(190) NOT NULL default '',`caption` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',PRIMARY KEY (id),KEY `mesid` (mesid),KEY `userid` (userid),KEY `hash` (hash),KEY `filename` (filename),KEY `filename_real` (filename_real) ) DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
After this, we've been able to install Kunena 5.0.7 without any other issue. There may be some other checks to do with posts attachments but at least, Kunena is installed!
