SQLite 3 encryption

Last Modified: 2014-09-13
I've been looking at using SQLite instead of MySQL to aid deployment of my applications, however Im concerned about security and reading up on SQLite and PHP you cant encrypt the database, you seem to be able to in everything else but PHP. This cant be true surely??

I have read you can buy encrpytion plugins but costs serious ££££.

Anyone have any suggestion for running a file type database (As opposed to a service like MySQL) that works with PHP?

Thank you
