Upgrade Instructions from 6.1.1 to 6.1.2

Step 0: Back up your Database and Files.

Step 1: Download Dolphin 6.1 Patch 2 Free Version, Ad Free Version or SmartPro Version

Download Download Dolphin 6.1.1 to 6.1.2 Diff to see file changes.

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

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.

Set the 666 permissions for the langs/lang-en.php file.

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'] = '1';


$site['build'] = '2';

Run the following script in you favorite browser to upgrade your database http://my_community_url/upgrade.php, where my_community_url should be replaced with your Dolphin site URL.

NOTE: You should run upgrade.php only once. If you run the script for a second time, it will result in Database access error.

NOTE: After running upgrade script please check your site homepage. If you have errors on the page like missing language strings, e.g. '_day_of_1' on events or blogs block, follow the following steps:

a) Open the file file upgrade.php in editor.

b) Remove following line:

execSqlFile( './upgrade.sql' );

c) Find the line:

$iLangID = (int)db_value( "SELECT `ID` FROM `LocalizationLanguages` WHERE `Name`='English'" );

Replace 'English' with 'en' in this line.

d) Run the upgrade script again.

e) Remember to delete upgrade.php from your server once finished.
