At the time of this writing, the latest version of Dolphin is 7.3.0 and it requires:

  • root access via SSH to the VPS where we plan to install Dolphin
  • PHP >= 5.3.0 (PHP 5.5 or later is recommended) with the following PHP extensions enabled: curl, fileinfo, ftp, GD Graphics Library version 2.0.x+ compiled with FreeType fonts (or ImageMagick), JSON, mbstring, mysql, openssl, xsl and zip. Also, short_open_tag option in PHP should be enabled and open_basedir should not have any value.
  • Apache Web Server >= 2.0 compiled with mod_rewrite module
  • A mail server for sending emails (Sendmail, Postfix etc.)
  • MySQL >= 4.1.2 or MariaDB installed on your Linux Cloud VPS (MySQL 5.5 or MariaDB 5.5 or later is recommended)
  • JRE 1.6 or higher (some of Dolphin’s features require media streaming capabilities)
  • Ability to create ​cron-jobs and execute files.

Step 1. Connect to your server

To connect to the server via SSH as the root user, use the following command:

Make sure to replace “IP_ADDRESS” and “PORT_NUMBER” with the actual server IP address and SSH port number. If you need a different user from root to log in, make sure the account has sudo privileges.

Step 2. Update OS packages

Before we can start with the Dolphin installation, we have to make sure that all Ubuntu OS packages installed on the server are up to date. We can do this by running the following commands:

Once that’s done, we can move on to the next step.

Step 3. Install Apache web server

Check whether Apache is already installed and running on your server:

We can also check if there are Apache2 packages installed on the server:

If Apache is already installed on the server, we can skip the Apache installation steps and proceed with JAVA, ImageMagick and PHP installation.

If Apache is not installed, we can install it using:

Once installed, start the Apache server and enable it to start on server boot:

Step 4. Install JRE (Java Runtime Environment) and ImageMagick

Install Java Runtime Environment:

Check if it is installed:

The output should be similar to this one:

Step 4.1. Install ImageMagick

Install ImageMagick using the following command:

Step 5. Install PHP

Install PHP 7.2 and all of the required PHP modules and other dependencies with the following command:

Step 6. Install PHP mcrypt

Install the PHP mcrypt module on the server using pecl channel:

Step 7. Install MariaDB and Create a New Database

We will use MariaDB as our choice of database engine. We can install MariaDB server from the Ubuntu base repository using the following commands:

Once the MariaDB installation is complete, run the following commands to start the MariaDB service and enable it to run on server boot:

Log in to the MariaDB server as the root user, create a new database and assign a MariaDB user with privileges for accessing and modifying the newly created Dolphin database:

NOTE: Do not forget to replace ‘sTr0ng-Pa55w0rd’ with a strong password (we recommend a combination of letters and numbers and at least 10 characters long).

Step 8. Create an Apache Virtual Host


In order to access the Dolphin instance with a domain name, we need to create a virtual host. For example, create a new Apache configuration file named ‘dolphin.conf‘ on the Cloud VPS:

Add the following lines:

IMPORTANT: Do not forget to replace ‘‘ with your actual domain name.

Save the file and enable the Apache configuration that we created for Dolphin:

We can also disable the default Apache virtual host file if needed:

Restart the Apache web server for the changes to take effect:

Step 9. Configure PHP

Locate the PHP configuration file:

The output should be something like this:

Edit the php.ini configuration file:

Add/modify the following options:

Make sure that ‘exec‘ PHP function is allowed (i.e. it is not listed in disable_functions) and ‘open_basedir‘ is not set:


Once again, restart the Apache web server for the changes to take effect:

Download the latest version of Dolphin available at ‘’ in the /opt directory on the server and extract it using the following commands:

Move the unpacked Dolphin files in the document root directory of your website:

Set the proper file permissions so the web server user can write in certain files and directories of the Dolphin instance:

Also, run the following command to make the ‘ffmpeg.exe‘ file executable:

Open in your favorite web browser and follow the easy instructions: check whether file and directory permissions are set properly on the server and check the paths to website’s document root and scripts.

On the next page, enter 3306 as database host port number, enter the database name, database user and password. On the next page, set a website title, site description, enter your email address and create a new administrator user.

To keep your Dolphin instance secure, remove the write flag from the ‘inc‘ directory:

Also, set a new cron job for Dolphin with the following command:

Then add the following lines:

Do not forget to change ‘[email protected]‘ with your actual email address, save the file and restart the cron service for the changes to take effect:

After finishing the installation, it is recommended to delete all files and sub-directories from the install directory located in the document root of the Dolphin instance as a security precaution, so run the following command:

That is everything! We successfully installed Dolphin on an Ubuntu 18.04 Cloud VPS. We can now proceed to the admin panel and configure Dolphin, install additional modules etc.
