Brief Installation Overview

These are quick instructions for those who already tried to install web scripts. More detailed instructions follow.

  • Download and unzip the Dolphin package, if you haven't already.
  • Create a database for Dolphin on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who will have all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
  • Place the Dolphin files in the desired location on your web server::

If you want to install Dolphin in the root folder of your domain (e.g. http://mysite.com/), upload the unzipped files into the root directory of your web server.

If you want to have your Dolphin installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://mysite.com/mycommunity/), create the corresponding subdirectory under the root folder of your server and upload the unzipped files into that subdirectory.

  • Run the Dolphin installation script by accessing install/index.php in your favorite web browser::

If you installed Dolphin in the root directory, you should visit: http://mysite.com/install/index.php

If you installed Dolphin in its own subdirectory called mycommunity, for example, you should visit: http://mysite.com/mycommunity/install/index.php

  • Follow the instructions on the installation screen (setting permissions, inputting necessary info, setting cron jobs).

Dolphin should be installed now. If you still doubt that the above instructions are not enough for you. You are welcome the page with detailed instructions.
