  • Download and unzip the Dolphin package to your local computer or directly to the server.

  • Create a database for Dolphin on your web server, as well as a MySQL user that will have all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
  • Place Dolphin files into the desired location on your web server (root or a sub-folder).
  • Run the Dolphin installation script from yoursite/install/index.php in your browser.

  • Follow the instructions on the installation screen (setting permissions, specifying necessary server info, setting cron jobs).
  • Log into Dolphin's Admin Panel from /admin/index.php and enter your license number (Free or commercial) into the License field of the Registration box.
  • When in your Dolphin Admin Panel, you need to compile languages for the Forum component called Orca.

Go to /groups/orca and click the link en next to the Compile Langs. Refresh.
