Hello Oscarfishlover,

Unfortunately it is not easy and will require a migrator with a good knowledge of how to do scripting and SQL queries.

Check on the Joomla extensions website, there are good non-commercial tools on there to help you migrate. Our community was in a similar position to you with migrating from phpbb to Kunena when we were upgrading from J1.5 to 2.5.

I think we used the Kunena Importer tool with Kunena 1.7.x ( link ), below is a topic discussing a similar method I would use:

Hi,
i`m thinking about to move from phpbb (v3.0.12) to Kunena, too. I have some questions and hope to get some helpfull answers ;-)

1. What i read from several threads, i have to go this way:

- Install Joomla (2.5.19)
- install Kunena 1.7
- use importer tool for Kunena 1.7 (wich one, 1.70, 1.71, 1.72?)
- upgrade Kunena to 3.05

Do i need to install with Kunena 1.7 the Kunena addons too, if i want them to use with 3.05?

Is there any possibility, to send the user the new password later, like a massmail?

I read somewhere, that a newer import tool version exist as an inofficial version. Could i have this version, too?

Thanks for your advices in advance,

Juergen

P.S.: please forgive my bad english...

If I understand your question correctly, during your migration process you will only need to install the Kunena component. Don't install the addons until the very end as this will help keep things simple for you.

User's account details such as password is managed by the Joomla CMS, you can check the JED for something to meet this requirement. I have never had to do this so I can't help much with this.

I would recommend you stick with the tried and tested method you mentioned above that has worked for many. Also always make a backup of your stuff before starting anything.

Hi,
doing such things like migrating from one technology to another always comes down to this : it'll cost you time or money.
As I didn't have time nor knowledge to try and migrate my phpbb3 forum to kunena3 I contacted cms2cms.com to do the migration. All it took was 98$. The tech guys were very generous and they helped me very quick and very good. Due to some technical issues I could not launch the migration myself but this was no probem at all. They did everything within a day and without fuss. I must thank these guys for being so professional and polite !

You can download the migration script from here:
