a) To check the mode your PHP is running in, log into your Dolphin's Admin Panel and then open the page admin/phpinfo.php
b) To fix it, you will need to set all folders permissions to 755 and all files to 644. The file <dolphin_folder>/ray/modules/global/app/ffmpeg.exe should be also set to 755.
Now, if you have Dolphin 6.1.4 version, you need to let Ray determine your new permissions properly. To do so, open the file <dolphin_folder>/ray/modules/global/inc/function.inc.php and insert these lines of code:
$sResult = "";
$bDir = is_dir($sFilePath);
if(is_readable($sFilePath)) $sResult = $bDir ? "755" : "644";
if(is_writable($sFilePath)) $sResult = $bDir ? "777" : "666";
if(!$bDir && is_executable($sFilePath)) $sResult = "777";
before the line
in the function checkPermissions($sFileName).
2) This problem can also be caused by script's inability to open widgets' default skins. You can try the following tweak which will be harmless for the rest of the script functionality:
open the file <dolphin_folder>/ray/modules/MODULE_NAME/skins/index.php and replace the line
$sFile = $aResult['current'] . "." . $aResult['extension'];
$sFile = "default.swf";
MODULE_NAME stands for board, chart, im, movie, mp3, music, presence, shoutbox or video.
