Install Dolphin in Vps / Hosting

Installing Dolphin

We can install dolphin in two ways either as main site or as a sub directory ie a folder inside the main site. The difference between this two are is that to get the dolphin installed as the main site uncompress the tar file in the public_html folder so that we can access the site as following

http://your-domain-name/

and in second type we will be uncompressing the tar file in a directory inside public_html so that we can access the site as follows

http://your-domain-name/<name-we-give>

Downloading Dolphin


Cd /<path-to-root_directory>/public_html

mkdir dolphin

Change to the Dolphin directory by entering the following command:
cd dolphin

Download the latest Dolphin release by entering the following command:
http://www.boonex.com/paymentprovider/payment#download

wget http://get.boonex.com/Dolphin-v.7.0

Unzip the archive by entering the following command:
unzip Dolphin-v.7.0

Adding a MySQL User and Database


We could create the database and user using cpanel mysql window. Normally the database are named as username_databasename and username as username_name

mysql
CREATE USER USER_NAME IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD
CREATE DATABASE DATABASE_NAME;
GRAND ALL ON DATABASE_NAME TO USER_NAME;
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
EXIT;

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON db_base.* TO db_user @’%’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘db_passwd’;
