I'm trying to install this version but I have problems: installation ends with a black "veil" that overlaps the page without the classical progress bar.

If I try to enter Kunena dashboard I have an "Installation in progress" page... But installation never completes.

Both applies to Google Chrome 30 and Mozilla Firefox 24.

I am having similar problems. No matter which way I try to update, it fails.

Nothing has changed on my site since the last update (whic I also had a problem with). Now I don't have access to the forum



The only thing I can think of is that it's something in my htaccess, I don't think so, but here it is anyway

Can you check the php error log.

You may be able to install 3.0.2 and get everything working again.

There are 2 sources that can cause installation process to fail like this. Either there's something wrong with the AJAX reply (some plugin adding extra content) or there's fatal error in PHP.

I doupt that its fatal error, but you should still check your Apache error logs just in case.

Can you check the network traffic (both Chrome and FF have tools that allows you to see all the requests) and check the replies for those requests. They should all be valid JSON.

Not sure if it can help you, but I experienced similar problems when updating from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2. We use a modified version of the yag-solved plugin and the plugin had a check on Kunena version like this:
// Do not load if Kunena version is not supported or Kunena is offline
		if(!(class_exists('KunenaForum') && KunenaForum::isCompatible('2.0') && KunenaForum::installed()))
		{
			die;
So respons was clear: DIE!
So may be you can disable all Kunena (related) plugins and try again.

I was able to install new version (at least in my local test environment).
How? I disabled Kunena discuss plugin, Tapatalk Kunena Plugin and Xmap - Kunena Plugin.

Anyway, I think that the first one is not involved in the issue but I disabled it to be sure.

Please make sure that the developers for these external software get the bug reports regarding to Kunena versions.

or DIE! is the best one I've seen this far and must be leftover from development phase. It's almost as good as not doing the check at all.

Hello dear developers. For some reasons I counldnt upgrade my Kunena for several months. Now I use Kunena 2.0.4 and need to upgrade it till the latest version 3.0.3.
But when I do it via Extension maneger in my Joomla 2.5 it fails and show me this:

Joomla! 2.5.8 is not supported. Minimum required version is Joomla! 2.5.9, but it is higly recommended to use Joomla! 2.5.11 or later.

But I read that 3.0.3 is ok with Joomla 2.5.

Please can you help me? What am I doing wrong?

Tan you in advance

Please make sure you upgrade your Joomla first to the latest version (at this moment 2.5.14). It's no use upgrading Kunena when you're still on an old and unsafe Joomla version!
