I created a How To Install Dolphin Video tutorial. Examples shown in the video are from Dolphin 7.1. However, the install process is the same for previous versions and will likely remain the same or very similar in new versions.
The video walks you through all the necessary steps from start to finish. It is based on suPHP configured web server/hosting. If your host or server does not have suPHP the only difference is you will need to set more file/folder permissions, and you may need to set the permissions slightly different (666/777), which you should be able to figure out once you watch the video.
This video includes instructions based on the following:
cPanel Linux Web Hosting
cPanel File Manager
suPHP configured web hosting server
What is covered in the Dolphin Install Video Tutorial:
Creating a Database, Database User, and Database Password
Adding Database User to the Database
Granting Privileges for the Database/Database User
Extracting the .zip file and moving files/folders to your desired location.
Running the Dolphin Installer with step by step instructions.
Setting up the Dolphin Cron Job.
Checking the Dolphin requirements, web server, and php settings.
