SQLite is great for a simple and easy setup and usage, but it may not be a good fit for all applications. See why here.
Common Feature Exceptions
- No support for stored procedures or functions, therefore no access to _proc or _func resources.
- SQLite has limited ALTER capabilities, therefore, changing table schema can not currently delete or change fields, only add new ones.
- No support for database field expressions. If used, errors will occur from the database as unsupported syntax.
- PHP extensions sqlite3 and pdo_sqlite are required to be installed (by default with most php installs) or compiled in.
Unlike other SQL databases, SQLite requires no database hostname or credentials, just a file location that is writable by the web server hosting the DreamFactory instance.
- database - Database filename or full path. If a simple filename (no path) is used, the file will be created under the /storage/databases/ directory from the root of the installation if it doesn't already exist.
