Step 0: Back up your Database and Files.

Download Download Dolphin 6.0.0003 to 6.0.0004 Diff to see file changes.

Step 2: Upload all files accordingly to their location in the script and in the patch file by file overwriting them.

NOTE: Do not upload the folders from the patch overwriting the ones existing on your site.

Step 3: You have to edit the build number of your script in inc/header.inc.php, replacing

$site['build'] = '0003';


$site['build'] = '0004';

Step 4: You have to edit the path to your script's inc/header.inc.php inside ray/modules/global/inc/header.inc.php, replacing [path_to]inc/header.inc.php with the absolute path to it. Also you have to do the same action for periodic/notifies.php file.
