Uploading to your Server

There are Three main ways to upload your Dolphin files to your server, we will only cover two here as the 3rd (ssh) is already covered in the geek speak installation guide ''here''

Uploading via FTP

Open Filezilla

On the top you'll see "Address" enter your domain.com (note no http or www)
Next you'll see "User" enter your Cpanel username
Next you'll see "password" enter your password
Next you'll see "port" enter port 21 (standard with FTP, if connecting fails, check with your host if its the correct port) click Quick connect.
Double click the folder next to public_html

Here you have 2 choices depending on what Cpanel theme your hosts gave you. If you have Cpanel "x" theme, call your host and ask them to change it to Cpanel "x3" theme, it makes life so much easier for you from this point onwards.
If your host won't change your theme to x3, find a better host, they are restricting you from so many cpanel features and forcing you to waste time.

Cpanel "x" theme

If you only have x theme you need to open the Dolphin unzipped folder so you see all of Dolphin's folders and files, then drag and drop every folder and file into the filezilla pane that is open on public_html

You need to keep Filezilla open for setting folder and file permissions, (also known as chmod)

Cpanel "x3" theme

If you have Cpanel "x3" theme, drag and drop the Dolphin.zip file into the filezilla pane that is open on public_html.

You can either keep Filezilla open for setting folder and file permissions, or close it and use Cpanel "x3" theme, both are just as fast
