Import Error With Kunena3

  • xxmesoxx


    I am trying to move my Joomla install over to WP, and am having some troubles with the Kunena importer to BBPress.

    When I attempt to do the import, it successfully moves over some of the information, but stops every time when it tries to import the topics. It gives me the error:

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘******.jos_kunena_topics’ doesn’t exist]

    The problem is that I don’t use the jos_ prefix anywhere in my tables, and it seems to be automatically inserting that prefix into the table when trying to import. I imagine the table it’s looking for is not actually jos_kunena_topics, but rather just kunena_topics.

    I am using Joomla 2.0.19 with Kunena 3.0.5, attempting to move over to the latest versions of both bbpress and WP.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Just an update on this…

    In an attempt to solve the situation, I took my site offline and changed the prefix of kunena_topics to jos_ and figured that might be a work around. As it happened, instead I just got the error stating WordPress database error: [Table ‘******.j25_kunena_topics’ doesn’t exist]

    So when I run it normally to use the j25_ prefix, it fails and looks for jos_, and when I change the table to jos_, it then fails and asks for j25_



    Wanted to avoid triple posting, but can’t seem to edit.

    I have found the problem and managed to get the migration to work. Within the Kunena3.php file, there is a single line with a hardcoded jos_ prefix in it. I changed that to my dbs table prefix and the issue was solved.
