Upgrading Dolphin 7.1.4 to Dolphin Pro (7.1.5)

In today’s blog, I’ll show you how to upgrade from the previous version of Dolphin (7.1.4) to the new Dolphin Pro (7.1.5).

The final step must be completed manually. Through FTP open:


and change:

$site['build']             = '4';


$site['build']             = '5';

Save the file and that step is complete. Now you can safely delete the “upgrade” directory and you’re done.

That’s it. You’re now running the latest “Pro” version of Dolphin!
