Merged Agora Pro to Kunena migration

Hi all,

I've been using Agora Pro from jVitals as my forum solution for years. I originally started off with phpbb2, and later on phpbb3, then I discovered Joomla and had to choose between Agora or Kunena. Kunena was in a pretty early stage back then, so I chose Agora, because I liked the look of the frontend, and also because paid support felt more reliable back then (and their support has been awesome throughout the years, kudos to jVitals for that...)

But since then Kunena has grown a lot, and for my situation Kunena has so many benefits (iJoomer iPhone app, responsive templates, and more) so I feel that a migration is necessary.

Has anyone ever successfully migrated Agora Pro to Kunena? I've found a script or two that seems to be able to convert Agora 3 to Kunena, but nothing for Agora Pro.

I have created jobs on oDesk and freelancer.com and the approximate price to pay to hire someone seems to be $200-250. This cost definitely works for my budget, but I'm still looking for options. If there is a script available already it would make no sense to "re-invent the weel", so to say. Alternatively, if someone else is in my situation we could work together on this one and split the cost.

In either case I'd be glad to share the script for benefit of the community once I've found the best way to tackle this issue.

Please join this thread if you know anything about this subject! :)

Thanks

Cheers

Peter

Hello,

I am also intersted to migrate from Agora to Kunea.

I just have read from some indications (Kunea) that they have under developpement à Migrator Agora/Kunea.

Now this indication let's say i not quite fresh. Question:

1. Is this migrator now available ?
2. Does another company offer such a migrator ? (jvitals seems not to offer it. GHreat sales policy).

Many thanks for your answers

Pest regards

That template will not work with the currently supported version of Kunena.

At the moment there is no migration tool for Agora to Kunena. I have asked for some more information on this subject and will update you as soon as possible.

It is possible to do with with MySQL if you know what you are doing.

I just have read from some indications (Kunena) that they have (under development) a Migrator ...

There was an experimental component that was written a couple of years ago that converted a much older version of Agora to Kunena - I think it was Agora v3 to K 1.7.2. This experimental tool is still available for download but I don't think it works with Agora Pro.

The experimental importer product has not been updated for a couple of years.

Regarding your comment about the support offered by the Kunena project in connection with migrating/converting other forum products, the information in the category description (at the top of this page) should make it clear:

This is for users to help other users, to discuss topics that relate to migrating from other web-based forums and converting the data into a form that will operate with Kunena.

It is important to note that the Kunena team does not have a standard, recommended or supported protocol for these ideas and that posting questions in this category may not receive advice from team members.

In addition to what has been written about migrating from "brand X" forum to Kunena, I think it would help if you read I want to migrate my forum to Kunena ...

I do not know the answer to this question. I do not think it would be in the interest of a software developer to provide a migration tool that facilitated the conversion/migration of their forum product to another forum product, do you?

I was preparing my reply to you when Jiminimonka was also writing and he is right. It is usually possible to migrate or convert just about any forum product to Kunena if you have a knowledge of how your existing forum operates at the database level and how Kunena operates at the database level (although the degree to which you can move everything from one forum to another forum may or may not be possible - it depends on the internals of the forum product you are trying to convert). If you have the skill, genuine need and the patience to persevere, just about anything is possible. I don't know how much it would cost to obtain the assistance of a professional who specialises in these things but you could be looking a spending anything from a couple of hundred dollars to a thousand dollars or more. It all depends on how important is your existing forum and how much of it may be relevant to your current business. There's no simple answer to that question; it is something that everyone must answer for themselves.

Please, for the sake of god, don't bother the iJoomer project anymore. It's all dead and gone. Don't know how many hours I've spent on their products... way too many! :)

A friend of mine helped me migrate my large Agora Pro forum to phpbb, for a very reasonable price.... from there it would be easy for you to go to Kunena... PM me if you're interested!

Best wishes

Peter
