Upgrade Instructions from 7.1.6 to 7.2.0

Step 0

Back up your current Dolphin files, folders and database.

NOTE: This upgrade will work with official Dolphin 7.1.6 version ONLY. If you applied some fixes to your Dolphin 7.1.6 then this patch should work in most cases, but there are some fixes that may cause conflict.

NOTE: 7.2.0 version has different requirements, so it's better to check if you have:

  • PHP 5.3 or newer
  • fileinfo and exif PHP extension

Step 1

Switch back to UNI template on the site and set UNI template as default site template in Dolphin Admin Panel -> Settings -> Templates -> UNI -> Make Default

Step 2

Download and extract the Patch Dolphin-Patch-v.7.1.6-to-v.7.2.0 and upload its files to your current installation, replacing all old files. Make sure that old files were REALLY replaced - site can become nonfunctional at all if old files are still in place.

NOTE: If you have custom translations, please refer to this instruction on how to add new language strings for your language.

Step 3

Remove the upgrade/.htaccess file via FTP or SSH.

Make sure that you removed .htaccess file from "upgrade" directory! Do not remove .htaccess file from Dolphin root folder, it will make almost all links on the site not working'''

NOTE: You may need to change your FTP client settings to show hidden files to see the .htaccess file in your FTP manager.

Step 4

Open the following URL in your favorite browser:

http://your-domain.com/path-to-dolphin/upgrade/

Replace your-domain.com and path-to-dolphin with your real values.

Apply all available updates. The script detects suitable updates automatically.

Step 5

Please follow and read all automatically completed steps of the upgrade script, paying special attention to the last step. The last step of this upgrade is IMPORTANT. You will be given special instructions by the script which you will have to do MANUALLY.

Step 6

Delete the following files manually via FTP or SSH:
