Upgrade Instructions from 6.0.0003|4|5 to 6.1.1

Step 0: Back up your Database and Files.

Step 1: Download Dolphin 6.0.0003|4|5 - 6.1.1 Upgrade Pack Free Version or Ad Free Version.

Download Download Dolphin 6.0.0003|4|5 to 6.1.1 Diff to see file changes.

Note: Remove the folder plugins/tiny_mce for better compatibility with the new TinyMCE Editor.

Note: Clear the contents of the cache folder.

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

Example: Open /inc/ directory of your site, also open /inc/ directory of the patch that you have downloaded to your PC. Upload all files contained in the /inc/ directory of the patch on PC to your site's /inc/ directory overwriting those already there.

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

NOTE: Make sure that the file inc/header.inc.php has 666 permissions.

Step 3: Upgrading your database. SSH is recommended but not necessary.

If you have an SSH account:

  • Log into your SSH client (for Linux) or Command Prompt (for Windows) under Dolphin files owner account (it's usually your CPanel or FTP account).

  • Change directory to get into your Dolphin's folder: for example:
    cd /home/myaccount/public_html/dolphin

  • Run this script:
    path_to_php_binary -q upgrade.60_61.php
    (for Linux)


path_to_php_exe upgrade.60_61.php

(for Windows)

  • The script will show you notifications about its successful or unsuccessful runtime. You need to inform the Support Department about all the unsuccessful notifications.

NOTE: You can't run this upgrade twice.

If you don't have an SSH account:

  • Using an FTP client or File Manager in your CPanel account you need to set the following permissions:

777 for the folders

backup cache inc langs media/images/classifieds groups/gallery media/images media/images/banners media/images/blog media/images/gallery media/images/profile media/images/profile_bg media/images/sdating media/images/promo media/images/promo/original media/images/sharingImages media/sound media/video periodic tmp orca/classes orca/conf orca/layout orca/log orca/js orca/cachejs groups/orca/classes groups/orca/layout groups/orca/log groups/orca/js groups/orca/cachejs ray/modules/board/files ray/modules/chat/files ray/modules/im/files ray/modules/movie/files ray/modules/mp3/files ray/modules/music/files

666 for the files

  • Run the following script in your browser:

The script will show you notifications about its successful or unsuccessful runtime. You need to inform the Support Department about all the unsuccessful notifications.

  • Now reverse the permissions of the following folders and files:

755 for the folders

inc periodic

644 for the files

periodic/cmd.php periodic/notifies.php periodic/cupid.php ray/modules/global/inc/header.inc.php

Note: You may also need to set 777 permissions for the ray/modules/global/app/ffmpeg.exe file.

Step 4: Delete the crons installed during your previous installations and replace them with those specified here

Step 5: Finally, you need to recompile Orca language file and register Dolphin, Orca and Ray widgets with the same licenses you used to have on Combo 6.0.0003|4|5 versions.

Note: After upgrade navigate to Pages Builder -> Account and check if all the blocks are visible for members.

Step 6: Those of you who are using own RMS servers should re-install them. The latest versions are available here (Linux and Windows versions). Installation instructions are available here

You need to specify your RMS requisites in Admin Panel -> Plugins -> Ray Suite -> Base Settings (RMS Address, RMS Port and RMS HTTP Port) according to your RMS installation. Don't miss the Use RMS checkbox! It should be ticked if you're using RMS at all.

Now your Dolphin version should be successfully upgraded.

In case of any troubles feel free to contact the Support Department at support@….
