Migrate from Kunena - wpForo
Trying to migrate from Kunena on my old website to wpForo on my new website. I've installed your plugin to migrate, but I can't seem to find where to input the "Kunena Database" fields. I'm logged in to joomla, and I can't seem to find where they are. Could you please assist me?
All settings and options are located in WordPress Dashboard > Go2wpForo > Kunena >> admin page. You have nothing to do in Joomla Dashboard. Just find Joomla database name, username and password and fill in Go2wpForo options.
First make sure the Joomla database is located on the same server with the WordPress you use for wpForo.
Then find those data in Joomla configuration.php file. Use some FTP client like FileZilla or just use your Hosting cPanel > File Manager and find configuration.php file, it should be on root directory of website. In this file you can see such information:
/* Database Settings */
public $dbtype = 'mysqli'; // Normally mysqli
public $host = 'localhost'; // This is normally set to localhost
public $user = ''; // DB username
public $password = ''; // DB password
public $db = ''; // DB database name
public $dbprefix = 'jos_'; //database prefix
The secondary prefix should be the phrase after the first table prefix. For example if your Joomla table prefix is jos_ , then comes Kunena Forum prefix jos_kunena_ , so you should fill kunena_ in secondary table prefix field.

Sorry, I think I did not make it clear.
I understand where to find that information, I mean for the fields that it is asking for. Where in joomla do I find them?
I am trying to find the information to put in these fields, but I don't know where my database information is.
I moved from kunena here, if you need help feel free and ask me.
All Suggestions are welcome
Thanks for your help, but I am still having issues. I migrated the database to my wordpress hosting, and when I try to set the credentials to import from kunena it gives me the status "ok" for everything but when i click next it gives me this error:
"Migrate2wpForo Notice: We can't find this board on this system."
I used the database for migrating joomla to wordpress with a different plugin with the same database credentials and it worked with no issues. Could you please assist me? I also tried deactivating, deleting, reinstalling the plugin with no fix.
There should be a button to clear all data and start again, just use it. Also you should deactivate the Go2wpForo plugin, activate it and start again.
You're entering wrong data, this is not a plugin issue. Please make sure the Joomla / Kunena database connection data are fill correct, there is no other hard things here.
Well..could you help me put in the right info then?
I used the auto-connect to current database, and it said "ok" but then gave me the error that i showed you. I tried resetting the plugin, and that did not fix it. I then changed all of the credentials to the ones found in the tutorial pictures you showed me, every single one is 100% correct from the configuration.php document. When I use those credentials, it gives me the red "NOT CONNECTED" error when i hit next.
Is there a support member that can login and help me get the correct info? I really want to use this forum..but it's extremely hard to set up properly and migrate it.
