Maintain its website - by lud80 07/02/2016 15:29 

maintenance.pngMaintain its website is like take out insurance to guard against risks. Except that the insurer is you.

The first thing to do is a Backup your site. Although good web hosts make it a day and allow you to reinstall the backup.

Evolutionary maintenance

You must ensure that your website is updated with the latest developments, which guarantees durability.

As soon as an update is available, do not wait, it often contains security updates in addition to improvements of the code of some modules.
Your CMS Guppy is equipped with a function "Install" which ensures a correct replacement of the fixed modules and adjusting certain parameters.

Three types of elements are affected by updates:

  • modules
  • themes (skins)
  • plugins

Corrective maintenance

Be sure to remove items no longer needed. This could cause malfunctions.

Ensure the integrity of the database.

Delete blog posts, comments, topics and answers forum and guest book notes that contain unwanted dialogues. If you are not responsible for these statements, you are responsible for dissemination.
Your GuppY CMS allows validation of these posts by the site administrator.

In conclusion

A website is an investment. It is necessary to ensure its sustainability.

Daily monitoring is necessary to correct as soon as possible any issues that arose unexpectedly.

Referencing his site - by lud80 07/02/2016 12:36 

referencement.pngThe term "SEO" (in English for SEO Search Engine Optimization, optimization means the search engines) is the set of techniques for improving the visibility of a website, ie:

  • submission (soumission in French) of awareness of the site with search tools.
  • ranking (positionnement in French) consisting in positioning the pages of a site in a good position in the results pages for certain keywords.

The difficulty of the exercise lies not so much in promoting the site with search engines that the content structure and internal and external mesh to be well positioned in the results on previously selected keywords.

Indeed, a majority of Internet users use search engines to find information and questions as such a search engine using key words (mot-clés in French). It is therefore essential before any thing to worry about the content that is proposed in order to best meet the expectations of users, and to identify the keywords that can be seized by them!

Before talking about SEO, the first step is to ensure that the major search engines, especially Google (as it is the most used) identify the site and browse the regularly come.
To do this, there are online forms for submitting its website:


Google : submission is free and completely free, but requires a certain time, quite variable depending on the time.


SEO is not necessarily paying for the search engines index the content of free sites and it is not possible to pay to better position its site.

Type "free SEO for websites" in your favorite search engine, you will be spoiled for choice.

Create his hosting - by lud80 06/02/2016 15:19 

outils.png Host his site, what is it?

It's simply upload the site you have patiently built on your pc.
You must therefore use a web host.

What is a web host?

The host of your website is a company that rents or provides disk space for you to store your website. It is at your host that you will store your entire site.

Hosting families.

There are two families:

- mutualized hosting: you share the resources of a single server with several other customers
Advantages: low cost, quick to implement.
Disadvantages: if the site of another customer mobilizes server resources (bandwidth, CPU, memory) it will be done at the expense of other hosted sites.

- dedicated hosting: with dedicated hosting: an entire server is for you.
Advantages: large disk space, very fast, you do not respond to other customers.
Disadvantages: a little more expensive, requires more advanced knowledge.

The domain.

Having a hosting is not enough, it is still necessary that it can be visited. So you need a domain name.

The domain name is an address (URL) that you have chosen for your site. it is very important because it allows including make your site more easily.

How to get a hosting and a domain name?

You type 'web hosting' in your favorite search engine and you'll be spoiled for choice.

CAUTION: choose a reliable web host, known, that will offer you more quality service and a hotline in case of problems.

Different options are available, choose one that fits your needs.

For the domain name, quality web hosts offer to you, although it is possible to buy a domain name with a registar.

A domain name consists of two parts separated by a point, domain_name.extension. The extension is less important in the selection, .com, .net, .info, etc ...
As against the name must be the significant subject matter of your site.

Can we host his website for free?

Some hosts, in addition to their pay offer, provide free hosting with subdomain.

I highly advise against, they are for the most part limited in volume, especially in bandwidth, sometimes with other restrictions in PHP language features.

There are also web hosts that offer only free, enrollment is limited. You also have spaces of personal service providers (ISPs), the service quality is poor, often with limitations.

One last area: to host his site at home on a PC with Linux dedicated to this task, but there must have strong knowledge in this operating system, as well as safety knowledge.
Advantages: free, the service (one is never better served than by oneself).
The inconvenients: requirement to pass through the box from the ISP if the connection is broken or faulty PC, the site becomes inaccessible.

Transfer its site at the host.

After validation of your registration, your host will provide FTP credentials (file transfer protocol) address of the server (eg, a username and a password.

You will need an FTP software like Filezilla (do not look for others it is the best), in which you enter the login credentials.

The web host also provides guidance on the organization of your disk space. In general you have to place your site in the www folder, or public_html. Once connected, highlight all the files and folders on your local site and drag them into this folder on your space.

The host will also provide you a user and password to access the control panel, also called manager, where you will find a file transfer module. I do not advise it, often impractical, transfers to the server are in this case HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol), so limited in speed.

The tools to create and maintain your site - by lud80 05/02/2016 15:31 

outils.png You can create and build your online website directly, it's totally not recommended.
It is best to create locally, mainly if you are starting.


The first software to install is a local web server.
There are various more or less complete. The main Windows are EasyPhp and Wampserver. MacOS that will MAMP and Linux LAMP or XAMP.

When you ask your browser (such as Firefox, Edge, Chrome or Opera for example) to display a web page, it sends a request to the server with this page which sends.
EasyPhp and Wampserver behave exactly the same way except that they are directly on your machine. There's no information provided on the outside so you can test your site without even having a hosting or even internet access!
It is as if they were posted on the web!

It includes the following Apache, MySQL and PHP. This is what Wikipedia says about their operation:

The roles of these three components are:

  • Apache web server is the "frontal": it is "before" all the others and responds directly to the web client applications (browser) 
  • The PHP scripting language used logic and allows processing (calculations, verification, test, etc.)
  • MySQL to store all application data (database)

(Source : Wikipedia)

The Guppy CMS

The cms Guppy has the distinction of not possessing like MySQL relational database.

Since version 5.01.00 it is "responsive design" and "mobile friendly", ie it works on all devices, PCs, tablets and smartphones.

It includes an administration interface from which you can activate sercices like blog, news, FAQ, guestbook, links, forum, calendar, information letter and other things you'll find. Online help is in place, with the ability to integrate with your site.



Firefox is clearly the best browser for the development and navigation. Very secure, it offers the ability to add extensions, here are 3 essential.

Firebug an essential extension to scan all the code and identify potential problems

ColorZilla an extension with advanced color pipette, a generator of colors and other features

Web Developer an extension that integrates a set of code control tools

logo-firefox.pngMozilla Firefox


Under Windows, the notebook is not made for development. Install Notepad ++, this is the most comprehensive.



To transfer your files you will need an FTP client (File Transfer Protocol) to exchange files between your local PC and the remote server.

On Windows, there either no hesitation, FileZilla is the tool you need.



A website is nothing without some graphics. Without necessarily being a pro of the composition, you will probably need to do the editing, either on the overall design of the site or the photos you'll probably have to upload.

There are many software, more or less complete, more or less complex.

To stay in the field of free and/or open source software, our choice will be limited to these two titles:
