Kunena 5.2 RC3 Released (29 Nov 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the third public release candidate of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 RC3 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Seeing as many people are getting this error, I think it's safe to say it's not an isolated incident and deserves a response from the devs...

Something is definitely botched in that a KPATH_ADMIN directory is being created during install when I highly doubt it should be anything but a variable...

I completely agree with you. This matter deserves a response from the development team and I would enjoy seeing what team members have to write. :)

I have also seen this (in one case—one of my websites—where I have Kunena installed) and I, too, am curious how this folder was created. Most of the time—when I upgrade from one version of Kunena to another—I use the recommended upgrade method described in the Wiki ( K 3.0 Upgrade Guide ) instead of the "automatic" method. I use the recommended method because there have been many questions asked (and problems reported) over the years by people who rely on "automated" approaches instead of the using something that is "manual" and (perhaps) more reliable. I think it's better to be safe—use the recommended method—than sorry.

However, as we have seen from several contributions in this topic, the problem is not isolated only to upgrading Kunena. The problem seems to also occur with new installations.

I'm not sure why I have, in one case, a ../administrator/KPATH_ADMIN folder (and this folder, in my case, has one file called install.php). It may be that I ugraded using the "automatic" method or it was left-over from some other upgrade; I really don't know the answer. The only thing I can say (in my case) is that I was able to successfully upgrade Kunena after trying to the process again.

I must have performed more than 500 updates of Kunena. I can't remember any time when I had a problem that was not the fault of something I had done wrong.

Perhaps the developers don't know why this happens. Maybe it's one of those strange mysteries that will never be properly understood? I think, though, that it's probably more important to work around the problem —at least to give people some relief—than it is necessarily to understand the root cause and prevent it from happening in future.

In summary, I agree with you that this topic deserves a response from the Kunena developers. :)

I'm sure that we will be getting an updated version of Kunea that will fix this issue. I just wanted to add that even just installing Kunea, without even enabling it or trying to put it on any of my pages breaks my site.

All I do is install the latest version, I get the installation failure message that everyone else is getting. Then I reload my homepage and I get this error:

I know very little about this kind of stuff, which is why I use a platform like Joomla to help e do the simplest of things, so this may be something that others are aware of, but I just noticed it and it concerned me.

1) go to extentions - plugins - check if system Kunena plugin is enabled
2) clear cache
3) try to install kunena
4) if not working, instal admintools
5) change database collation. to utf8_general_ci
6) try to install kunena again

Hi.
I am trying to install Kunena on a brand new website, brand new domain.
Website is on Joomla 3.3.6.
I have downloaded the newest release of Kunena, and installed it using Extension Manager (Uploading ZIP file). When I click on Components in the Admin section, and then on Kunena, it gives me this error:


Kunena Installation Failed!

This solved the issue for me (clean install on Joomla 3.3.6)
