SQLite is either built-in (PHP5.0 to 5.3) or installed from PECL (PHP5.4+).  The SQLite server is the extension that is part of PHP.  I don't know of a 'query editor' for it though there might be.  For a demo, I created the database and tables thru PHP.  No port is needed because the database is accessed thru files and not thru the network.

Please see the answer here:

What have you tried in the way of imports?  There may be minor implementation differences, but SQL is SQL and most of the commands should work.

greetings rgb192, do you definitely know that SQLite is NOT available to you in your PHP version? ? Almost ALL PHP installs have SQLite of one version or the other.  Please understand that SQLite is a very different "Data Base Engine" than the MySQL that you are used to. In SQLite you do not connect to a database server, it just "Reads a File" in your directoies to open the Database.

Run this code to see if you have SQLite available -
<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL); 
ini_set("display_errors",1);

if ($dbo = new SQLite3('studys.slite')) {
   echo 'YES, SQLite3 works ! !';
   } else echo 'ERROR, Did NOT open studys.slite file to create Database';
?>

Open in new window

if you do not have SQLite3 then you will see a PHP Fatal ERROR, You may have SQLite2 installed insted? Other code is need for that.

Also, related to your previous question about PDO, , the PDO SQLite is NOT the same as the PHP SQLite, as far as installation. I have used servers where PDO had SQLite3, but the PHP only had SQLite2 installed, you can have   PDO  with SQLite, and PHP without SQLite, or the other way.

From another question, I now know it is just a php.ini change. Best answer for me is the php to test availability of sqlite.

Thanks all.
