SQLITE REQUIREMENTS
3
-------------------
4

    
5
To use SQLite with your Drupal installation, the following requirements must be
6
met: Server has PHP 5.2 or later with PDO, and the PDO SQLite driver must be
7
enabled.

SQLITE DATABASE CREATION
10
------------------------
11

    
12
The Drupal installer will create the SQLite database for you. The only
13
requirement is that the installer must have write permissions to the directory
14
where the database file resides. This directory (not just the database file) also
15
has to remain writeable by the web server going forward for SQLite to continue to
16
be able to operate.
17

    
18
On the "Database configuration" form in the "Database file" field, you must
19
supply the exact path to where you wish your database file to reside. It is
20
strongly suggested that you choose a path that is outside of the webroot, yet
21
ensure that the directory is writeable by the web server.
22

    
23
If you must place your database file in your webroot, you could try using the
24
following in your "Database file" field:
25

    
26
  sites/default/files/.ht.sqlite
27

    
28
Note: The .ht in the name will tell Apache to prevent the database from being
29
downloaded. Please check that the file is, indeed, protected by your webserver.
30
If not, please consult the documentation of your webserver on how to protect a
31
file from downloading.
