How to install Dolphin?

Dolphin is a free community builder software. With it you can create any kind of online community.

Performing a Dolphin installation is not very difficult, but you still need to have some idea of MySQL, file permissions and system paths.

You can check the official Dolphin installation instructions for more information on the installation steps.

However, many people find it difficult to perform a script installation themselves. This is why many hosting providers offer automatic tools through which users can easily install an application in just a few clicks.

Admin User: the user for accessing Dolphin's admin area
Admin Pass: the password for the admin user
Admin Password (Again): retype the password for the admin user
