Changing the name of the orca folder V6.1.4

This is a pretty nifty one by lancashiredates at boonex unity full credit goes to him on this one.

For those of you that would rather have yoursite.com/forums instead of yoursite.com/orca

This is for Dolphin 6.1.4 but if you look around lancashiredates has some posts for previous versions too.

You can read his forum post here:
