Upgrade Instructions from 6.1.4 to 6.1.5

Step 0: Back up Dolphin files and folders. They will be changed by the patch. This patch is compatible with any Dolphin package: AdFree, Free and SmartPro.

Step 1: Extract the archive Dolphin 6.1 Patch 5 and upload its contents in your Dolphin installation folder overwriting the corresponding files and folders.
You can use any FTP client to do so.

Download Dolphin 6.1.4 to 6.1.5 Diff to see the file changes.

Step 2: Now you need to set the following permissions (only if your PHP is not running in CGI mode): in an FTP client

SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/board/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/chat/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/im/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/movie/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/mp3/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/music/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/presence/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/video/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/desktop/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/shoutbox/xml/main.xml
SITE CHMOD 666 ./ray/modules/global/xml/main.xml

in SSH:

chmod -v 666 ./ray/modules/board/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/chat/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/im/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/movie/xml/main.xml  ./ray/modules/mp3/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/music/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/presence/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/video/xml/main.xml  ./ray/modules/desktop/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/shoutbox/xml/main.xml ./ray/modules/global/xml/main.xml

Step 3: Navigate to this URL in your browser: Dolphin_URL/upgrade.php, where Dolphin_URL is your site's full URL, for example http://my.community.com/Dolphin, so the full URL will look like this http://my.community.com/Dolphin/upgrade.php.

Step 4: Now you have to edit the files periodic/cmd.php and periodic/notifies.php and replace the code path_to with the server path to your Dolphin installation folder. This path can be found in the file inc/header.inc.php as the value of the $dir[root] variable.

Step 5: Delete the sql folder and the upgrade.php file. Open the file inc/header.inc.php and replace

$site['build']             = '4';


$site['build']             = '5';

Step 6: The RMS server needs to be upgraded, too. Please follow RMS stop/start/upgrade instructions.

Now your Dolphin 6.1.5 patch should be successfully installed.
