Hello,

I need to be able to export a raw SQLite database into a file using PHP. This is so that I can download this file from the server and use it with other applications.

I'm experienced in PHP and SQL, I know how to create and manage databases, but I can't figure out how to export in the raw database format. It always seems to want to export as SQL statements, which is not what I want, I need the raw format.

Thanks,
Steve

A SQLiteDatabase object is returned rather than a resource :)
