Upgrade Instructions from 7.2.0.B1 to 7.2.0.B2

Step 0

Back up your current Dolphin files, folders and database.

NOTE: This upgrade will work with official Dolphin 7.2.0.B1 version ONLY. If you applied some fixes to your Dolphin 7.2.0.B1 then this patch should work in most cases, but there are some fixes that may cause conflict.

Step 1

Download and extract the Patch Dolphin-Patch-v.7.2.0.B2 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 2

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 3

Delete the following file manually via FTP or SSH:


Step 4

Open the following URL in your favorite browser:


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

Report any occurrence of bugs in Dolphin 7.2 forum.

Known Issues

  • There is an error when you go to Admin Panel > Settings > Advanced Settings. To fix it run the following query:
    UPDATE `sys_options` SET `AvailableValues` = 'PHP:bx_import(\'BxDolPayments\'); return BxDolPayments::getInstance()->getPayments();' WHERE `Name` = 'sys_default_payment';
  • In the last step it is said to "Click here to update Wall module handlers", however there is no such file since upgrade folder was removed before according to the instructions. Please do this "Click here to update Wall module handlers" and only after handlers are updated - remove upgrade folder. If upgrade folder was already deleted then upload it back and open the following URL: http://your-site-domain.com/your-path-to-dolphin-files/upgrade/files/7.2.0.B1-7.2.0.B2/update_wall_handlers.php, then delete upgrade folder.
