Installing SQLite3 on Apache/PHP5

I've heard sqlite should be built in to php5 but for some reason it wasn't.
I ran apt-get install php5-sqlite3 and successfully got phpinfo() to show:

SQLITE3
SQLite3 support       enabled
sqlite3 library version       3.3.13

However when I run sqlite_open('database.sqlite') I get:

Call to undefined function sqlite_open()

How can I find out what's wrong? Any commands to try, or logs to check?

BTW, using Ubuntu and Apache 2.2.3.

Thanks

Hi,

it could be this bug you just hit:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/php-sqlite3/+bug/178906

On the Ubuntu forums, a successful workaround is said to have been this:
sudo aptitude install sqlite
sudo aptitude install php5-sqlite
sudo aptitude install sqlite3
sudo aptitude install php5-sqlite3
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart


Hope this helps.

Yeah, it seems to at least partly relate to that bug.

Using that workaround I could make sqlite3 work by using PDO, but I could not use it with with function on http://se.php.net/sqlite.

Do you (or anyone) know if I could use the native sqlite functions if I recompiled PHP with the '--with-sqlite=/path/to/sqlite3' statement? (as explained here http://devzone.zend.com/node/view/id/760#Heading6)

I don't exactly know, but I'm sure I'd try if I were in your position.

Good luck.
