Technical Requirements

Dolphin requires the following pre-requisites for your server:

  • Linux/Unix? (Red Hat, Debian, FreeBSD, Mandrake, etc.) or Windows OS, Apache Web Server
  • PHP 4.3.6 and higher (safe_mode must be Off, exec() must be allowed and allow_url_fopen also must be On) with mbstring, domxml and xsl extensions (they are required to run Orca forum and support UTF-8)
  • Sendmail or Postfix
  • 20MB of disk space and 1MB of MySQL DB space for installation
  • 8MB of disk space and 50KB of MySQL DB space for an average user

Otherwise you will not be able to install and operate Dolphin properly.

HostForWeb is recommended hosting.

NB! This post on the Boonex blog implies that root access and a dedicated or virtual server is required for hosting.

If you all the above requirements are met on your server then you are ready for installation.
