Description and concepts of datalife engine
This system is characterized by convenience for both users and administrators, reducing the cost of resources, which allows you to speed up all the processes available for novice users involved in the promotion, content and change sites. DataLife uses MySQL database and yazuk writing PHP, is a content management system. There are both Russian and English and Ukrainian versions.
Advantages of datalife engine
High-quality and powerful security system. Minimizing the load on the database. Easy to fill and adjust. Automation and manual control. Unlimited number of categories and varieties of subjects. DataLife Engine, as the site engine will allow you to achieve the desired look, use any templates and create an individual look. How to work with this datalife engine system
Working with the engine is very easy, just as easy to install it, first of all, you need to download DLE, there are paid and hacked options, which solution is best for you, you choose yourself. Next, you need to access FTP and place the system on your hosting. Then you need to type the name of the site, adding "install. php" and use the window to start the installation. Then check the availability of the necessary files, parameters and enter the name of the database, previously accepting the agreement, when the check is finished, complete and installation. The next question will be "how to use?» installed program.
The main advantage of this system is the convenience without restrictions, you are given the opportunity to use any template or your own design. It is easy to install the template you like, all you need to do is download it and place it in the existing folder "templates", and allow its use in the administrative panel. To go to the admin through the address http://website. com/admin. php, log in and start editing.
Another advantage of DataLife Engine is the ability to use and work with multiple templates at the same time and the permission to change the design of users. Adding them is similar to the installation, so each visitor can choose any view he likes, your site. When working with templates, you can use html, or use special. tags. Editing the main page is available if you know HTML, because any adjustment uses the name of the field, which is communicated with the script through the forum, so it is very important not to affect these fields when editing. You can insert a picture using tags, using various links enclosed in this tag, for any picture you can choose different parameters and alignment.

Many of you probably wandering on the Internet, seen on many resources, with the names of the site map, content or something similar. We’ll talk about this - about site maps. Namely, how to make a site map using the DataLife Engine.
A site map represents the full content of your resource, similar to the contents of a book. Books, did you read everything? Well, or at least looked at the contents of the book, which describes the full navigation of the book - on which page this or that chapter begins. So the site map performs similar functions for navigating a website. So, let's look at how to create a site map?
To create the content of your resource, you will not need any special knowledge or skills, just read this post to the end. And after reading you will have a sitemap for DataLife Engine.
How to make and configure an XML site map on DataLife Engine?
An XML map performs the same functions as a regular site map, only it is not intended for visitors, but for search robots, popularly referred to as search engines. And XML is a content format for search engines. Let's start creating an XML site map. In DataLife Engine, an XML sitemap can be done using the built-in module, unlike WordPress where we needed plugins.
To create an XML map, go to the admin panel and look for something similar in the list of all sections: Site map for Google and Yandex.
In general, this module creates an XML map in automatic mode, but still, if you just started using DataLife Engine and did not configure this module, you must definitely do this. So what can we configure here?
The first thing we can tune is the amount of news. which will be sent to the site map. This is useful for those who for some reason do not want to send all the news to the sitemap. But usually, this field remains empty, so that all the news of your project are sent to the sitemap (site map) file. The main thing is that the file does not exceed a size of 12 Mb and the number of links is no more. than 500000. If these limits are exceeded, search bots will cease to accept the sitemap. But usually, that’s enough.
Then we indicate the priorities for pages, news, and categories. Here we indicate the values from 0.0 to 1.0. Priority determines which link in the XML map is more important than another. Depending on the direction of the resource, you can determine the priority. For projects similar to mine, the highest priority, in my opinion, will be news. That is, we indicate the highest value for the news. The highest value is not necessarily 1.0, it just needs to be higher than the rest. In general, the choice is naturally yours, which URL you consider more important, and put it.
After that, you need to click on the "create/update site map file" button. Thus, we can create a manual XML-map, but I want to remind you that in general it is created and updated automatically. After creating, you can check your map by clicking on the link.
Having done the above manipulations, it remains to tell the search engines the address of our site map, so that they go to our resource and index it.
After sending the notification, you will see a report on sending the notification. Which search engines received a message from you, and which did not. But note that before this you need to register in all systems.
Be sure to read about Google, follow the same principles for other search engines, and once again I repeat, be sure to register with all search engines.
So, the XML sitemap for DataLife Engine has been created, now you need to create a sitemap for visitors as a table of contents for the book.
In this article, we will talk about creating a site on the Datalife Engine. Currently, there are v.13.2 Datalife Engine (in the future possible development of a system Datalife Engine v.13.3, v.13.4, v.13.5, 14.0). Each new version is supplemented with new buns, simplifying the site, adding additional modules.
So, if you want to make your life easier and create a full-scale project, you will need to install a whole system that includes modules, hacks, templates for DLE (Datalife Engine).
What do we need to do first? I ran ahead a bit without telling you how to buy a domain name and purchase a server on which the site will be stored. But it’s okay, we’ll catch up.
1. First of all, we need to download the files of the system Datalife Engine, for this download the link below Datalife Engine version 13.2.
Download Datalife Engine v.13.2
2. Once you have thrown a folder on your hosting, you need to start the installation, for this, we pass on the link yourdomain.com/install.php. After that, click on the start installation button. Do not forget that if you just bought a domain name, when passing through the link may be an error that indicates that the DNS server has not yet been updated!
3. After that, you can read the agreement from the developers of the program, however, most of this point is skipped and not read, you also do not advise you to waste time.
4. Go to the next screen, and set the proper permissions to your files and folders. Yu for this you need to open the Files — Change the attributes and put down the desired number, but according to statistics, everything has long been put down. To do this, you need to open files - Change attributes and put down the necessary numbers there.
5. After that, the most interesting part begins, you need to specify the database in which your entire site will be stored, for this, we first need to create it. When we registered to host, go to the database creation panel and there we indicate all the necessary data, namely the database name, user and password. It’s best to write them down somewhere!
After a few minutes, the Datalife Engine installation will be completed.
DataLife Engine – paid CMS with three types of licenses: basic, Advanced and Unlimited License. As part of the basic license, users receive an open-source script and the ability to receive updates throughout the year. The Advanced and Unlimited license allows you to remove the copyright from the user part and gives all the features of the engine, including additional support for the script.
After the first year, the license must be renewed. Otherwise, the user ceases to receive updates and remains on the version that was at the end of the license.
Initially, the purpose of CMS DLE was the management of information resources – hence the wide possibilities of commenting, evaluation, voting, ratings and other attributes of news portals. But time and competition have changed the destination – DLE is now commonly used to create entertaining web resources. Among them:
Torrent tracker. Online-cinema. Gaming sites, etc. Information portals are also found, but not much more often than on Joomla or Drupal. so it is inappropriate to talk about some narrow specialization of the system.
The main advantage of DLE is its "lightness". If you configure the system correctly, you can even create a large project on modest hosting resources, which will give a small load on the server.
Another plus – the system code is initially optimized for search engines. No additional plug-ins and long set-up prescribed the normal URL and meta tags of the pages, which speeds up the work of search engines.
The main claim to DLE is the susceptibility of this system to hacking. According to Yandex statistics for 2011, almost half of all infected sites from the top 10,000 work on CMS DLE. Safety study of CMS in 2014 showed that every 20 minutes the site made on DLE, gets blacklisted.
The percentage is also scary: almost a third of infected sites work on DLE (29.2%). A terrible result when you consider that users pay for this system money comparable to the annual license of Kaspersky anti-virus for 5 devices. It is clear that any CMS has vulnerabilities – but in the case of DLE there is a feeling that the development team generally ignores security issues.
The feeling is wrong: vulnerabilities are detected, developers release patches and offer to update the system. The problem is that you can only upgrade if you have a license. When the license ends, the site owner can continue to use DLE, but he will not receive updates. As a result, all vulnerabilities remain uncovered, and the system turns into a sieve. This is due to the statistics of infected sites, which does not reflect the number of licensed and unlicensed versions of DLE.
Another drawback is the difficult procedure for beginners to update the engine. Some template files require manual adjustments, which requires an understanding of the programming languages.
DLE is a good solution for creating an entertainment or news portal if two conditions are met: you will renew the license and constantly update the engine. If you are looking for a free solution, it is strongly recommended not to use a broken system or work on the old version – so you risk sending the site to the company to the attacked and infected portals.
Novice webmasters in this system have nothing to do; it is better to start training on free engines or website designers. and this CMS at first glance can scare, forming a misconception about the complexity of the creation and administration of the site.
