Dolphin Pro 7.1.5 Released. Important Security Update!

Dolphin 7.1.5 (Final) is released and is available for download. This is a security update. We strongly recommend all Dolphin-powered sites to upgrade to 7.1.5 immediately.

While this is just a service update, triggered by urgent security improvements, we still plan the next feature to be available in a few months. Since next feature update will bring a lot of new functionality, it may take a few alpha and beta releases before stable package is out. There will still be a direct upgrade script available for Dolphin Pro 7.1.5, so it is safe to launch your project now, based on 7.1.5.

Even more so, it is a good idea to start now, because we're offering a "Start The Year" promotion with a 20% discount on all licenses.

Upgrade Instructions from 7.1.4 to 7.1.5

Step 0

Back up your current Dolphin files, folders and database.

NOTE: This upgrade will work with official Dolphin 7.1.4 version ONLY. If you applied some fixes to your Dolphin 7.1.4 then this patch should work in most cases, but there are some fixes that may cause a conflict.

Step 1

Download and extract the Patch ​Dolphin-Patch-v.7.1.5 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.

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

Open the following URL in your favorite browser:

Replace and  path-to-dolphin with your real values.

Apply all available updates. The script detects suitable updates automatically.

Step 4

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 5

Report any occurrence of bugs in ​Dolphin 7.1 forum.
