Question Migrating Kunena J!2.5 -> J!3.4

Hi,
I am in the process of migrating a site from J!2.5 -> 3.4.
In the end it was much simpler for me to create a completely new Joomla site for V3 than it was to port my existing site, but I still want to migrate my existing forum and users.

Having tried lots of different things, with limited success, my process is now as follows:

1. Using phpmyadmin export all _users and _kunena tables to file.
2. import these tables into a virgin J!2.5 site, and upgrade this site to 3.4 using the automatic upgrade
3. export _users and _kunena tables from the upgraded site
4. on the new site (J!3.4), install kunena (same version as old site).
5. import users and then kunena tables to the new, v3, site.

This all seems to work fine, and indeed the website looks perfect - the forum is there, all posts etc (I have also manually copied over attachment folders).

The one issue I have that remains is that the category list in the kunena BACK end in empty - there is nothing there at all. All of these categories are showing fine in the front end.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here? Or indeed a better migration path, if there is one?

thanks,
matt

Why so difficult, try.

Update joomla 2.5 to J3.4.1 . Its just 3 clicks.
Then do update extensions, select all extentions, and update.

That's all.

Or the manual way is.

Clean J2.5 install. Same version.
Copy *_users*
Copy *_kunena*
Update joomla to J3.4.1
Install Kunena 4.0

Thanks but I don't want the rest of the website - *only* my users and the forum. THe manual way you describe is basically exactly what I have done, and it seemed fine except for the missing categories in the *back end* only (categories visible in front-end).
I have been playing some more, and my categories have now appeared - I'm not sure why (worrying?) - but I'll take it.
