Kunena 6.0.8 Released (17 Jan 2023)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.0.8 [K 6.0.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.2.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.0 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 6.0.
Merged Minimum required version is MySQL 5.1, but it is highly recommended to use MySQL 5.5 or later
I tried downloading the latest version and i need mysql 5.1++ ? My host only goes up to: MySQL 5.0.83 and they say its the latest STABLE version? I checked with godaddy and its the same.?
How can I install kunena now? I dont want to miss this great component?
That is correct. This is a minimum technical requirement for K 3.0 (see Technical Requirements ).

That is not correct; the latest stable version of MySQL (according to the MySQL website ) is MySQL Community Server 5.6.13. Active support of MySQL 5.0 ended in December 2009 when the version entered an " extended support " phase until December 2012; the information in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysql#Versions may help to explain this better.

The minimum technical requirements for Joomla 3.x are, similar (i.e. MySQL 5.1). If your webhost is telling you that MySQL 5.0.83 is the latest stable version then it's fairly obvious they do not know what they are talking about. In this case it's time to move to a more reliable, forward-thinking and customer-focused webhosting provider and, I think most members of this community would agree, there are a lot of webhosting providers (including GoDaddy) that do not fall into this category.
I find it so stupid of my host im not on the latest version.
Thank you for your reply.
In the meantime, if I was in your position, I would start now to look at alternative webhosting providers - there are thousands of them that will be better than the one you are using now - and the cost is only your time (to search around), a bit of time to make the changeover, and a few dollars. Wouldn't it be worth it?
When I want to upgarde or install K.3.0.3 I have this error message :
MySQL 5.0.94-enterprise-log is not supported. Minimum required version is MySQL 5.1, but it is higly recommended to use MySQL 5.5 or later.
But when I do a phpinfo on my website that tell me : I have the version mysql 5.5.31.
So, What's wrong ?
Thanks and sorry for my bad english
If you want to use the Kunena forum I think you have two options.
Op1: Upgrade the MySQL on your server to new version.
Op2: Install the Kunena version 2.x
